“AS THE DUTTON GROUP CONTINUES TO GROW, BOTH IN TERMS OF OUR OFFERING AND OUR LOCATIONS AROUND THE WORLD, OUR STRUCTURE AND OPERATING PRINCIPLES ENSURE WE REMAIN FOCUSED ON WHAT MAKES US STAND APART.”
Since 1993, The Dutton Group model has allowed the business to thrive due to its firm foundation on four key pillars: decentralised organisation, organic growth, vertical integration, and balance. Decentralised organisation ensures that each group is both autonomous and responsive within the wider group, allowing the commitment of resources to various units, and encouraging organic growth through individual entrepreneurial spirit. At the same time, the structure of vertical integration allows control over every link in the value chain. Finally, an overriding principle of balance ensures that growth can be sustained across all activities, and that the group can respond quickly to shifting economic factors. The result is an agile business which continues to build on an impressive heritage and which looks forward to an exciting future.
