Formal groups are a vital part in any business’s future development. Sometimes, when there is a shift in the senior management team or hierarchy of executives in a company, a change of direction can be encouraged in order to boost the company’s profitability. This may involve streamlining some loss-leading operations while focusing on some more money-generating activities that haven’t been specialties of the business in the past.

A formal group works by having a panel of experts (executives from the business, consultants or independent advisers) who will provide updates on how the transition is going, while also making suggestions on how to overcome certain problems which are being faced within the business at present. This focus can ensure that the transition is made successfully without a power vacuum, a loss of leadership, or an unnecessary change in direction. It can be important if a significant level of investment is made into business innovation, as the money may go to waste if certain targets aren’t met and if some clients aren’t satisfied.

Change is always important in any business, and there are many companies which have fallen into administration because they did not change their company’s business model in line with what the market demanded. Examples of this include Woolworths in the UK, which was usurped by the diversification of supermarkets. Formal groups will ensure that a business remains intent on innovative activity, remaining better than competitors, and avoiding any dangerous or questionable activities that might damage progress or the company’s overall reputation.
