Measuring What Counts: New Economics and Strategising in a Changing World - Richfield

Measuring What Counts

New Economics and Strategising in a Changing World


We can only manage what we can measure – but what should we be measuring. The paradigm shifts in business caused by the pandemic and its aftermath have made this question more pertinent than ever. With the ground shifting beneath our feet, it has become clear that conventional measures of business success and economic advancement are at best inadequate and at worst, actively misleading. We need a new set of metrics – rooted in contextual intelligence and taking account of past, present and future influences – if we are to accurately and meaningfully assess where we are going, and how, in today’s dynamic and fluid economic landscape. After all, if we are not measuring what counts, why are we measuring at all?
