How is your operating model handling disruption?

Disruptive technologies and empowered consumers are accelerating market change. But more than nine in 10 executives report that their companies’ very existence could be jeopardized by operating models that can’t keep pace.

That was before COVID-19 struck. Some industries have been up-ended dramatically by the pandemic and most others are adapting to constant change. So, while many organizations have responded to the crisis with agility, the big challenge is how to maintain this for the long term.

Those companies armed with intelligent operating models that enable them to continuously adapt are more likely to prosper. And it pays off: The long-term EBITDA growth for truly agile organizations is 16% compared with 6% on average for non-agile organizations.

Building organizational agility and resiliency to respond to continuously changing markets and customer behaviors.
