how to start on the path toward organizational agility
When top tennis stars like Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer play, they always seem to be in the right place at the right time. It's as if the ball is hit directly to them. Part of this is obviously due to the players' quickness and fitness level. But what is not always obvious is that the players are applying their knowledge to create their future.

But working toward organizational agility takes effort. This article outlines tips to help organizations begin to explore the process.
