Creating adaptable businesses eBook

What the fourth industrial revolution means for business leaders

creating adaptable businesses

Today, organisations exist in a disruptive environment, where change (or the requirement for change) is the norm - change that is occurring on an unprecedented scale. We are on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

So how are business leaders responding?

In BIE’s recent research of over 150 business leaders, 58 per cent said that they find the speed and scale of change, required to remain competitive, overwhelming. And just 21 per cent have a clear vision for creating a responsive business.

In this eBook, we explore views from thought leaders and practitioners on the impact of the current environment - and the importance of an agile mindset in helping business leaders to forge a way ahead.
