Case Notes Compendium – Designing Adaptable Organisations for Tomorrow’s Challenges

Modern businesses experience many challenges in the face of the digital economy, with a need to balance agility against scale.

Case studies and topics include:

  • Achieving Enterprise and Market Agility at Avanade and Unilever
  • Agility and Digital Capability at L'Oreal
  • Strategic Decentralisation at Imperial Brands
  • Using OD to Develop Digital Capability at Rolls-Royce and Hilton
  • Organisation Design and Strategic Direction Change at Tate &Lyle, and more.

The case studies and accompanying commentary are drawn from our research report - Designing Adaptable Organisations for Tomorrow's Challenges
