What will avoid more Fresco refurbishments like this during this recession?

It’s a tough call deciding where to invest when the top priority is to preserve cash and cut back, BUT the fall out of not investing in your business capability in a declining market is very costly on productivity, agility, motivation and building value. These are the very times when you need a very capable and effective team the most.

This well publicized and well intentioned Fresco refurbishment is the typical outcome of well intentioned employee / business trying to carry out specialist work without the resources to do so. In a tight market professional services are operating just like this; operating like pass the parcel completing the work wherever it lands; destroying value!
