Traditional organizations – those that plan for expected events, rely on formal performance reviews, and require authorizations and sign-offs before making decisions – face increasing risk. Today’s business universe is complex, ambiguous and volatile. Survival requires fast, effective responses. The agility that business consultant and instructor Pamela Meyer advocates can help companies respond to sudden change and challenges with speed and confidence. Agility turns threats into opportunities. Meyer describes how leading organizations thrive in an unpredictable world by developing agile individuals, agile teams and a flexible culture. getAbstract recommends her manual as a leader’s guide to cultural transformation, a career tool for employees and a manual for learning professionals – must reading for CEOs, HR managers, start-ups and small business owners.
