The Agile Organization: Balancing Efficiency and Innovation (Even in Tough Times)

Business leaders realize that the pace of competition has increased, and scale and cost advantages can be overcome by fast, ferocious startups with speed and agility.

Yet many recognize that their day-to-day reality is silos, sluggish processes, and stalled innovation.
