REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

In a fast-moving world like ours, there are very few companies that don't undergo transformation. As experts in developing global leaders, the faculty at IMD have accumulated a wealth of knowledge on how companies transform. Today, they share this insight with you.

In the new book "Quest: Leading Global Transformations," you will learn of the seven transformation journeys, or "quests:" for Global Presence, Global Value Generation, Global Leadership Development, Global Solutions, Global Agility, Global Co-innovation, and Global Sustainability.

And for your own development quest or for those of teams, explore the benefits of IMD's Orchestrating Winning Performance program.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
