OnDemand Webinar: Dynamic Capabilities as the New Board & Executive Strategy

The current economic era demands a focus on companies’ continuing commitment to change. Rather than slowing down in the post-pandemic world, change is picking up speed and becoming a constant. To survive, your organization needs a strategy and a management model that can adapt and flex with the pace of change, rather than being disrupted. Leading companies such as Haier, GE Appliances, Google, Microsoft, and many more now state: Not developing is the biggest risk!. They all identify three elements to change which the company must excel at, and manage: understanding change, mobilizing to change and transforming to change. In other words, every company has to develop, and be excellent on executing Dynamic Capabilities- and this should be a strategic focus for Board of Directors.
