Most business schools continue to prepare managers to be effective in stable and predictable environments, conditions that, if they ever existed at all, are long gone. The Agility Shift shows business leaders exactly how to make the radical mind-set and strategy shift necessary to create an agile, entrepreneurial organization that can innovate and thrive in complex, ever-changing contexts. As author Pamela Meyer explains, there is much more involved than a reconfiguration of the org chart and job descriptions. It requires relinquishing the illusion of control at the very foundation of most management training and business practice.
Despite most leaders' approaches, "Agility is not simply accelerated planning." Unlike many agility books on the market, The Agility Shift provides specific, actionable strategies and tactics for leaders at all levels of the organization to put into practice immediately to improve agility and achieve results.

Unlistenable. Robotic voice put me to sleep
This book may be good but trying to listen to this monotonous presenter is impossible. Every time I try I realize after a few minutes that I switched off in my mind. I genuinely checked the website to see if it was a person reading the book or a computer program reading it. I’m still not sure.
I honestly don’t know if the content is good because I couldn’t continue listening.
