The story, period by period
|PERIOD 7: "In a tough quarter, 'INNOBUILD' turn the competition on its head!"|
Period 7 proved to be another tough quarter for nearly every team, but there was one shining exception, "INNOBUILD", who grew by an impressive 13% to move to the top of the table with 1,263 pts, and as their rival struggled they opened up a substantial 184 point gap to the chasing pack with just two rounds to go. After leading for the last 2 rounds, previous leaders "TEAM 6" narrowly lost out on a key bid to the Bommel Group, and as a result their forward workload amd margin KPIs fell markedly, and they slipped back to 3rd, but "Upstream" held firm in second despite a 10% decline. At the wrong end of the table the management teams of the "Covin Team" and the "CAT-TEAM" will need to explain their current plight at an emergency shareholder meeting, and they will ned to look very carefully at all aspects of their business to turn their company's fortunes round in period 8.
