Energy and Water businesses work with a layer of complexity beyond normal commercial pressures. Multi-faceted stakeholder relationships, regulatory and public scrutiny and ongoing industry structural and technological change all intersect. Effective strategic thinking is therefore critical to long-term financial and operational success in these dynamic sectors.
