The days of monthly and quarterly management reports and meetings are rapidly coming to an end. The technology to manage the largest organisation to the smallest on a daily real-time basis is sweeping the world and will vastly increase the ability of managers to react quickly to changes in their business. Those managing on a monthly or quarterly basis cannot react quickly enough to the current rapid changes in markets.
And for shareholders, it will mean that information can flow to the stockmarket at a much faster rate.
I do not believe this revolution has been well-communicated to managers and stockmarkets.
