Treat yourself to a long weekend in a beautiful place where you can free your mind from this loop of stagnation. Then, critically examine your business model, your market performance, the way you market and your operational processes.

A corporate foresight process can help you to cope with the such a fundamental change challenge.
Get out of crisis mode and back to creatively shaping the future!
