***BUSINESS BOOK AWARDS 2022 SHORTLISTED TITLE***
Disruption is everywhere: it presents both great opportunities and significant threats.
Do you know how to shape your strategy to respond?
What if you had a game plan to navigate disruption?
The Disruption Game Plan presents a tried and tested framework to help senior leaders think differently about disruptive trends and emergent risks, and to act differently when making decisions, joining up thinking on innovation, risk, sustainability and strategy.
By revealing how we can more effectively deal with challenging business environments, this book will help any curious and ambitious senior leader to go beyond a short-term, fire-fighting response, and instead set out to ‘change the game’.
