Identify Trends


From the Journal-Sentinel online:

Actuant…. its former name, Applied Power, is an assortment of industrial companies that are leaders in distinct markets.

I never heard of Actuant nor Applied Power….though at sales of $1.4B….Actuant is a good size company….located in Menomonee Falls, WI

The key point that I see in the J-S story is the positioning of the business for the future by identifying these four trends:

  • Energy
  • Infrastructure
  • Food and farm products
  • Sustainables, renewables and natural resources.

Good business leaders/managers are always looking forward.
