Leading an Agile Workforce Transformation

Corporate leaders and senior decision-makers must seize the opportunities presented by rapid technological advances, shifting demographics, and new employment models to ensure today’s businesses endure in the future. To build and maintain competitive advantage, businesses must recognize and manage the risks, while also capitalizing on the changing nature of work, workplace organization, and the workforce itself. Leading an Agile Workforce Transformation will help you make the right moves today to develop and sustain the agile workforce you will need tomorrow.

Leading an Agile Workforce Transformation is offered in collaboration with Harvard Business School’s research project on Managing the Future of Work.
