Achieving Organizational Agility

Business is moving faster and faster, and to keep up, leaders at all levels need to know how to pick up the pace. As the demand for quantity goes up, the demand for quality doesn’t go down. Leaders need a new way to approach these twin demands that gives them the ability to improve both of these capabilities. Cross – training, or non – linear development, is that approach
