If your company hasn't yet embraced change, then you better get on it! Here are some factors driving change now, as well as ways to make the most of it.
Overlapping Functions = Hybrid Leaders
As functional demands overlap and merge, hybrid leaders are in demand: people with ahigh EQ, multi-functional and prioritization skills (i.e., Business Leaders need to know Technology & vice versa). Promote a learning culture to help leaders operate outside their comfort zones.
Increasing Complexity = Hybrid Systems
The need for flexibility in an increasingly complex world means ERP systems are being replaced at a skyrocketing rate with legacy and cloud technology hybrids. The good news: these can scale and save money.
Culture Clash = Hybrid Environment
By 2020, five generations will be working together as boomers shy away from retirement. Help your organization embrace culture shifts with a formal, overt plan.
