Future-ready business

Sam Ganga, Tom Stewart, and Doug Ferren unpack 5 years’ worth of data to uncover the factors most impacting middle market growth.

There’s a radical business revolution reshaping the competitive landscape, fueled by rapid advancements in artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, and other technology and process innovations. While large enterprises have the necessary scale to be on the leading edge, midsize businesses often face resource constraints which can end up limiting their ability to compete and grow. 

Staying ahead necessitates a consistent and strategic response.

In this podcast, Sam Ganga, a partner in KPMG’s Digital Strategy and Transformation practice, and Tom Stewart and Doug Farren, part of The Ohio State University’s National Center For The Middle Market, sat down to discuss what 5 years’ worth of data and 20,000 company surveys have revealed about the seven key factors that affect a middle market company's ability to grow. Topping the list are:

  • market expansion, which accounts for nearly a quarter of the growth of middle market companies, and
  • attracting, retaining, and developing talent, especially digital talent.
