Rapid Retooling: Developing World-Class Organizations in a Rapidly Changing World

Antoine Gerschel

Organizational and individual change is constant--it's not a race to the finish line. Rapid Retooling explains that organizational change is a cyclical process, and shows readers how to constantly and rapidly adapt--or "retool"--themselves, their employees, and their organization business models to keep pace with technology and economic events. By implementing the strategies and tools presented in the book readers will forge a workplace culture that is flexible, resilient, and aware of events that affect its business. This awareness will allow for faster, more efficient, and more cost-effective change initiatives.

You will learn how to:

  • Build employees' business acumen, thereby increasing their ability to spot opportunities for driving revenue, as well as potential organizational threats.
  • Create a culture that encourages innovation
  • Link your organization's business goals to employees' personal goals, increasing their engagement with and dedication to their work.
