Does your organization have the capabilities of the future?

The rate and impact of change in the business world is unprecedented (watch Gary Hamel, Reinventing the Technology of Human Accomplishments, 2011 on YouTube), and instills an urgency of change in our organizations, and in ourselves.

This is a blog special about what we heard, learned and was inspired by at the Global Peter Drucker Forum 2017.
