Radical Business Agility
Navigating Through Uncertain Times
How to prepare your business to respond quickly and effectively to the turbulence caused by politics, climate change, pandemics, and economic uncertainty.
Future success depends upon the ability to adapt to colossal, rapid changes that lie ahead. Public and private organizational life is changing dramatically. We do not have the luxury of time anymore. Product cycles are shorter and job security is uncertain. Everything is moving faster, and we are experiencing an exponential growth of new technologies and systems pouring into our society. There is uncertainty in the geopolitical arena, and with climate change. There are pandemics, conflicts, and fiscal volatility stress. These challenges make it imperative to become responsive and practice agility in business.
Radical Agility provides insight into key factors necessary for agility and the different ways to make your organization more adaptive. It also provides a compendium of tools that will help you implement agile practices into the processes, systems, organizational structure, and business culture in your industry in order to overcome inhibitors of agility—and long-term business success.
