Efficiency and resiliences

In our changing world, it is no longer enough to run a business efficiently. The sole focus on efficiency makes a company susceptible to market changes.

Rather, companies need the ability to change strategies relatively quickly and adapt to new situations at short notice. This enables the company to absorb surprises and stress. It becomes resilient and can ideally transform these challenges into opportunities. Corporate management has a great influence here through its understanding of leadership and the design of corporate structures.

What we have is experience, which steps are helpful to start successfully and to develop the organization successfully towards business agility.
