Keynote Address: Competing in the New World of Work

At the outset of the pandemic, organizations did more to reengineer work in a few days than over the past 20 years. The changes in structures and behaviors were ruthless and radical—they had to be. Now, after a year of adapting, organizations have settled into new, often better, ways of doing things that will become more permanent and will define how organizations work in the future.  

In this special presentation, gain research-led insights into using radical adaptability to win in a world of unprecedented change.
