Turn volatility into your comparative advantage
Why do some corporations master volatility and others do not? The secret is in their structure – how they are organized. Volatility is driven by comprehensive changes and it has become the new normal. My presentation will give insights into how to design and organize your business to make sure that it remains both effective and efficient even in times of high volatility. In other words, how to make volatility an advantage by knowing what to do, what not to do and when to do it!
Sourcing, procurement and technology are all imperative key-words in handling volatility, but to master volatility we have to design our structure to be adaptable and responsive. Find out where your corporation is in this regard. Do you have an organizational structure that allow flexibility? Is it maybe too rigid or to the contrary too uncontrollable? Which functions are driving and which ones are driven; is the tail wagging the dog maybe?
