The fifth BearingPoint Institute report focuses on developing practical responses to the challenges of organizational improvement in the digital age
Amsterdam/London, October 20, 2014 – Today, no company operates in isolation. The increasing prevalence of strategic partnerships and joint ventures between organizations is making it increasingly difficult to identify where the boundaries of one company end and those of the next begin. But does this matter in a world where all that counts is whatever it takes to accelerate speed to market and the pace of innovation? The fifth BearingPoint Institute report, published today, focuses on strategies for leveraging the opportunities of accelerated change in areas including the achievement of hyper-agility in retailing, driving operational improvement at line-manager level and the eight key public-sector reforms required to prevent challenges from escalating into crises.
The future is about co-operative and collaborative work models that enable organizations to transcend their traditional limits and re-invent their capabilities dependent on the skillsets of their partners. This shift of focus from the center to the edges is a cultural challenge for many, but the rewards of success are the agility and flexibility required for success in the digital economy.
