This seems like a simple question with a simple answer; in reality however all too many businesses have lost sight of their key business purpose. Often this is caused by growth and diversification, often by shareholder centered rather than customer centered behavior, often because the self centered rather than customer centered objectives of top management blur the focus. As a result of this the strategic goals, business processes and organizational culture become misaligned, employees lose their focus, and customers lose their faith.
