Nevertheless, great opportunities and new possibilities are also emerging.
Simply optimizing processes and coaching managers is often not enough in many situations.
To continue to be successful or to consistently expand their top position, companies must constantly question themselves, partly reinvent themselves and fundamentally transform themselves.
