How to Perform Death-defying Feats of Business Transformation
Transformation is not easy. It’s complex, scary, and fraught with political and economic peril. Businesses stand to lose a lot, and many of them do. According to McKinsey, 70 percent of business transformations fail. Yet, business transformation is not optional, if an organization wants to survive. The world is constantly changing, and sooner or later something—disruptive technology, innovation, social change, major acquisitions, changing consumer behavior—will force an organization’s hand. Business transformation expert Angie Tuglus mines her decades of experience leading cross-function change and innovation initiatives at start-ups, Fortune 10 companies, and government agencies to write TransformAble. The result is a carefully honed five-phase framework for transforming high-level, visionary concepts into sustainable operating realities.
