The Agile Corporation
An Executive Leadership Approach

A series of discussions around transformational leadership

The impact of this most recent round of economic turmoil has affected leaders, investors, the banking community, currencies, boards and their organization’s agility.  This series of discussions on September 26th, 2012 will provide opportunities for business leaders to learn from experts and share best practices to transform their organization. 

Executives are learning to operate with leaner budgets and resources as well as to effectively  ‘re-think’ how to conduct daily business. Whether the organization’s goal is to sustain, grow organically, or to embrace new opportunities, Transformation is the new reality.

Guiding executives and their teams through the challenges of cultural, historical, financial, & political transformation that generally inhibit organizations from successfully positioning themselves to perform with agility is the goal of this series of important discussions to be given September 26th, 2012 by thought leaders and industry practitioners
