The need for agile leaders and organizations is critical and driven by several key factors, all of which challenge current business models and render product and service offerings less effective or even obsolete. This is creating urgent need for new capabilities, propelling organizations into uncharted territory. The marketplace in nearly every industry is being disrupted by new competition—often from outside the industry. The acceleration of technological advancement as well as shifts in population demographics result in increasing and evolving expectations and demands. The ability to respond to these pressures requires a new level of customer-centricity, stretching organizations to not only increase the speed and relevancy of what they deliver, but also continuously improve how they deliver it.
The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) is in the midst of conducting an extensive study to explore traits and characteristics of agile leaders and organizations in today’s ever-changing business climate. Join Kevin Oakes, CEO and Founder of i4cp, to:
