    Business Agility is an approach that gives the right business flexibility and fast decision-making in a volatile environment, providing a great capacity for innovation, adaptation and change. Businesses everywhere are trying to ‘get business agile’ – but it’s not easy to adapt to becoming this adaptive.

    How can conventional organisations succeed in this transformation?

    In this book, project and change management expert Peter Taylor walks you through the change process step by step, providing a tried and tested transformation roadmap: benefits are outlined, solutions to common challenges offered, and tried and tested methods and tools provided. He guides you towards a decentralised management style that offers more successful decision making through collaboration.

    By reducing processes, adjusting the governance and believing in ‘the power of the people’ to deliver simple success in a time of complex demand, the guidance in this book will help any manager get Business Agile.
