A good starting point is to think about your business goals.
Some key questions to ask:
Are you looking to expand your top line or optimising your bottom line?
Are you looking to strengthen managerial capabilities or enabling the workforce to transform the business with you?
Are you planning to enter new markets or building new skillsets to seize more opportunities?
