An environment that is changing ever faster and deeper. Markets becoming more dynamic and complex. Competitor and customer behaviour is increasingly unpredictable. These developments are affecting all organisations. Whoever wants to survive in the future, needs to adapt with lightning speed. Increasing numbers of organisations recognise that traditional ways of working are no longer adequate. They lack agility.
In this book, agility expert, Mike Hoogveld, shows us what we can learn from smart startups and other successful, innovative organizations. Using scientific insights and practical examples, he describes how to make your organization responsive by focussing on continuous improvement. Thus, he gives a very concrete answer to the crucial question with which so many organizations are struggling: how do we increase our agility?

- Includes an Agile Assessment, to determine the agility of your organization
- The number 1 bestseller in the Netherlands
