Published on

In this world of exponentially increasing market disruption, it is more imperative than ever for organizations to not only achieve operational agility (efficiency, speed, etc.), but also organizational agility (speed to respond to market change).

In this session, we explore how leaders can guide their organizations past these barriers and accelerate the momentum towards true organizational agility.
