In Adaptable Anna Hedlund, Jimmy Janlén and Martin Wasielewski share our experience on how leaders and managers can and should build organisations that are able to quickly and sustainably adapt to unprecedented change, complexity and ambiguity.
Our perspectives are both influenced by our individual and shared experiences working with organisations to achieve challenging business goals and improvements as well as other people’s experience and research.
