Organisations in all sectors are facing major changes that can challenge core processes, customer and employee expectations, organisational and IT structures and even the complete business model. Change has always been a part of any organisation, but today business leaders face a somewhat different situation. The sheer pace and volume of changes that have the potential to completely change transform businesses have increased exponentially. In a scenario where change is the only constant, it can be tempting to quote Darwin: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives but the most adaptable”.
