Using diagnostic tools and practical models, the book describes how to master the essential components and principles of agility and respond to uncertain and fast-changing environments.

Featuring case studies from some of the world's leading companies and illustrating how they have successfully and less successfully transformed for greater agility - including Lego, General Electric, LMVH and ING - Stéphane J.G.
