The inaugural KPMG Enterprise Report includes analysis and commentary on the current shape of New Zealand’s private business sector.
KPMG partnered with Colmar Brunton to conduct quantitative and qualitative research; conducting workshops and in-depth interviews, looking at how to grow New Zealand’s future prosperity.
Using case studies and commentary, the Enterprise Report takes an in-depth look at the three key stages in an entrepreneur’s journey – the start-up phase, the growth phase, and the ‘letting go’ phase (where the business owner steps aside to let others lead the business).
The KPMG Enterprise Report discusses how, although New Zealand is a great place to start a business and to do business, it seems that it is not that easy to grow a business here. Not enough of our business take that leap from being a small concern to achieving their full potential. Medium-sized enterprises (averaging 23 employees and turnover around $5m) are contributing 34% of gross domestic product (GDP).despite making up just 6.5% of New Zealand’s businesses.
The Report delivers some key insights into what’s required to grow a business. Looking through KPMG New Zealand’s Enterprise DNA framework we have focused on the traits covering leadership and ambition and have found clear differences in the attitudes and attributes between the people leading small companies, compared with those that have ambitions to grow.
