One of the questions directed to the attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this year was:
"What is the most important business issue for 2006?"
BusinessWeek printed the answers in their recent issue. The answers varied from person to person. Here are a few of them: Thomas Friedman, author of The World is Flat: One word: energy. The biggest risk for 2006 is that prices stay high." Ann Winblad, Partner, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners: "The most important issue is to be an innovator. You can't participate in the global market unless you're looking ahead." Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google: "The environment and escalating disasters. Global poverty. All businesses should care about these issues." Check out more about the conference here. What's the most important business issue for you this year?
