The Effects of NZ Business Culture
A survey recently released shows that in spite of an improved economy and outlook more SME owners want to either sell their business or stop growing in order to better balance work and home life. This is a key reason why our economy fails to produce the many larger companies we need in order to boost exports and rise sustainably back up the OECD ladder. In this Sporadic issue we look at work we did back in early-2011 examining NZ business culture and how it works to impede business and economic growth.
