Are you ready for tomorrow’s business?

Future readiness is the ability to continuously rejuvenate and reinvent your core business strategically while simultaneously creating new sources of competitive advantage. Leaders who are future-ready, especially in times of crisis or uncertainty, can adapt to new realities faster, develop internal capabilities with a sharper focus, and find new sources of growth with an elevated sense of purpose.

Strategy for Future Readiness draws on research by IMD’s Center for Future Readiness and China Initiative to propose a practical framework for individuals, teams, and organizations to become future-ready by addressing five critical challenges.

You will develop your own strategic roadmap for becoming future-ready in the context of a continuously changing business landscape, societal needs, and disruptive technologies.
