Energy & Natural Resources
In the global energy landscape, traditional centers of demand are being overtaken by fast-growing emerging markets. The energy mix is shifting, driven by technological improvements and environmental concerns. More than ever, the industry needs to adapt to meet those changing needs.
The role of digital technologies for generating, handling, and communicating data has taken center stage in energy discussions. While the power industry doesn’t have a reputation for customer focus, as customer expectations rise, social connectivity spreads, and distributed generation gains steam, this must change. As the power industry evolves, utilities must see their professionals not as experts focused on technical excellence, but rather as ones who possess management, analytical, and commercial capabilities. An aging workforce and widening skill gaps in the utility sector have begun to threaten ongoing operations.
What we do
To expand, improve profitability, gain competitive advantage and maintain their commitment to high levels of environmental performance, energy companies will have to change their strategies and operational models. As they position for the future, they must confront issues of energy demand, penetration of renewable energies, commitment to CO2 emissions reduction, the costs of different types of fuel, and infrastructure costs of different energy sources.
Furthermore, customers can now select the alternative power providers of their choice, which makes it imperative for providers to stay at the top of their game. They need to cultivate and nurture teams that lead from the front and see the bigger picture, anticipating impending volatility. August Leadership believes in finding the right talent for industries grappling with external forces and seeking the right fit in uncertain conditions.
