“Turn and face the strange” David Bowie,'Changes'.
Facing up to change is difficult for individuals and can be unmanageable for organizations if not effectively planned for.
Today, more than ever, disruptive changes can render many of the skills and mindsets of a workforce incompatible with the demands of evolving markets and strategies. The gap between the quality of business strategy and the capability of the workforce is an important predictor for successful execution of strategy and achieving financial targets.
