The disruption caused by digital-enabled cultural shifts is presenting organisations with opportunities, as well as presenting never-before-seen challenges. Change management is now a constant and is shifting away from more traditional top-down waterfall methodologies and towards more collaborative, self-managed agile practices. This is enabling rapid responses to market shifts, improved customer experiences and reduced costs. It’s also introducing challenges around risk management as well as cross-generation and cross-cultural communications, and of course what roles leadership and coaching have to play in this reimagined organisational reality. What should our response and approach be to this changing landscape?
