Industrial Policy, beyond the dilemmas

Inflation, economic instability and geopolitical disturbances have made it difficult to conduct business today. Additionally, manufacturing industry problems such as lack of skilled personnel, supply chain issues and digitization challenges can slow down the industry’s growth. At the same time the manufacturing industry is facing many dilemma’s, each to be handled in a different way and the solutions often seem to be in conflict with each other. At times when a generic discomfort rules the climate in the boardroom, industry policies may provide clear guidelines to deal with those dilemma’s. Allowing boardroom members to make more balanced decisions leading their companies through these challenging times into a new era of sustainable growth. Within the intimacy of the Executive Council its members exchange insights and experiences in dealing with those dilemma’s, defining a new course beyond the dilemma’s.
