IMD Issue 08: 2014
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Like it or not, change is a part of business. While some changes bring opportunities and others threats, a lot of the outcomes of change are defined by our perceptions and reactions to them. A revolution currently occurring in the taxi industry reminds us of how difficult change may be.

It also reminds us that change is a part of life and a part of careers. Where are you in your career path and could a program like IMD's Breakthrough Program for Senior Executives (BPSE) be your ticket to successful change?

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
