Staying Agile in a Changing World: The Role of Futures and Standards in HR

  • Friday, January 10, 2020

For many organizations, scanning the financial headlines must be confusing.  Instead of globalization we are entering trade wars; economists thought experiments of negative interest rates are now a reality in many developed economies; crypto-currencies are encroaching on the turf of central banks; teenagers are leading public opinion on climate change and CEOs are held accountable for decisions made by long-retired predecessors.  

What are the demands on organizations and their leaders? What can we do to increase organizational resilience?

One area of opportunity and risk is your human capital. Do you have a grasp of the value your people bring and where they may pose a risk? We only have to think of Enron, Volkswagen, Nick Leeson and you can see how damaging a toxic culture and misdirected incentives (among other things) can do to your business. 

In shaping your organization’s futures, we’ll explore a significant lever for better governance and value creation.
