Developing adaptiveness in a changing world

The greatest gift of Lean Thinking is the ability to adapt. But what strategies, practices and mindsets do we need to rely on in order to develop this fundamental trait in our organizations and become resilient?

The world is changing at an unprecedented pace. Words like “deglobalization” are being used more and more, reflecting an increasingly complex and multipolar world, in which countries are looking to “de-risk” by minimizing global interdependencies. A new Cold War seems to be setting in, weakening already compromised supply chains and forcing companies to come up with new and clever ways to move goods, while a new arms race is heralding change for many economies. At the same time, the spread of generative AI threatens to transform the labor market as we know it, with unpredictable consequences. You may think this has nothing to do with you, but make no mistake… these historic changes will impact the way your organization operates.

To thrive, businesses will need to understand the world they are in, be curious and willing to experiment, while coming up with solid long-term strategies. Leaders will have to do their part, ensuring that continuous learning permeates their organizations and that the right skills are developed.

This year’s Lean Global Connection will help you to make sense of a messy, changing world, by bringing you the stories of adaptiveness of those organizations that are leveraging creativity and lean to find their way forward.

See you on Novembe 21 at 2PM UTC!
