Reporting performance has been associated for a long time with negative feelings, as both managers and employees have linked it with the consequences of not meeting targets. For some companies reporting performance is just a regulation imposed by financial authorities, while for others is a way of communicating and gaining trust of stakeholders.
In today’s business world, enterprises have to meet the advanced demands for greener, more customized and higher quality products. This means they have to focus on smaller and more specific market segments of customer oriented products. Mass production is turning into ‘mass customization’, which can be defined as offering customized goods at a price close to that of mass production.

The fashion industry is just like any other industry. Brands have to be creative, to impose themselves on the market, to attract clients and to sell their products.
