Business development expert Vlatka Hlupic’s previous book, The Management Shift, provided leaders with a model for mobilizing transformation in the workplace. Here, she continues sharing her insights into the challenges and opportunities companies face, and how they need to change as society enters the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Companies must be nimble and responsive to customer needs, and workers must feel empowered. Hlupic goes through the actions organizations must change, the lessons practitioners have learned and proof that implementing the management shift she outlines offers the business world sustainability, profitability and, most of all, relevance.
