Resilient, Productive & Crisis-Ready

Understanding & Developing Business Agility

Course overview

Today's world of business and work is complex and changes rapidly. More often than not, organisations are playing catch up to the digital-enabled Customer and nimbler competitors. The impact of this is, unsurprisingly, a more pressured and intense internal working environment.

At the same time, digital transformation is also taking place in many organisations. While digital technologies have provided many benefits for the workforce, new modern challenges have emerged. Process bottlenecks, people conflicts, communication breakdown and general tension have increased throughout large and small organisations. Over time, this can have a significant detrimental impact on productivity, organisational focus and team morale.
