What is a Business Review?

Nowadays businesses are confronting fierce competition, more turbulent markets, more demanding shareholders and more discerning customers. In the past, change was sequential, but now a multitude of changes can and are happening simultaneously. So a lot of businesses wonder how they need to perform in such an environment of rapid change.
