The Chameleon Effect
Bold visions and harsh realities require new forms of Agility and Adaptability.
Business agility is rooted in the leadership style, the work design, work-climate and people development. Unlike traditional organisations that define themselves by the products or services they produce, adaptive organisations define themselves by the value they create leaving them free to develop new and innovative products and services. This requires structures, practices and people that can continually sense and respond to the most appropriate emerging customer needs before your competitors do.
