„Confidence, competence and competitive advantage”
Public sector or private sector. Services or manufacturing. Small company or large corporate. Organisations of every kind in every area of the economy are having to adapt to new business models, and respond to new organisational challenges. In an hour of information, discussion and illustration, we’ll explore – and try to explain – some of the mysteries of Business Agility. We’ll discuss why it is a vital capability for every organisation, and more importantly, why it is necessary at every level, operational and managerial. In a world of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, ‘business as usual’ is not the recipe for success – you need to adapt to constant change, and respond to continual challenge. Business Agility is the power to adapt and respond, and a true competitive advantage.
