The rapid rate of change and increased complexity in markets, customers, products, and services is making it almost impossible to keep up, let alone stay ahead, in business. Combined with the emergence of unimaginable competition, the frequency and pace of change required to thrive in the global marketplace has reached a point where it affects everything. We need to be able to change swiftly to solve new problems faster, accelerate innovation, and get our products and services to market faster. If we do this, we outperform the competition.
This Council helps leaders leverage their collective experience to meet these challenges head on. Our mission is to advance the practice of change management by creating new thought leadership and developing capabilities for extraordinary performance.
