Future challenges

A colossal amount remains to be done – challenging our clients, and therefore us. It seems certain that once these objectives are achieved, they will be replaced by new ones. As companies grow in size, most chairmen and CEOs become concerned that their organisations may become flabby, slow to respond, bureaucratic and sclerotic. Any sensible business leader aggressively resists this phenomenon; we all seek the benefits of size and scale without sacrificing the suppleness and energy of a smaller firm. And, for the first time, new technologies now make this possible on a global platform. WPP wants the scale and resources of the largest firm together with the heart and mind of a small one.
