Disruption, whether you react to it or cause it, is the new normal for business. The rewards for getting it right are huge, and the consequences for failure are terminal. So why do so many organisations continue to fumble it? That is the challenge that Menkus & Associates addresses. The key is to understand the organisation’s readiness to act at the critical top and middle levels and then to deliver a tailored activation programme. That is what Menkus & Associates does: we help you activate your organisation’s capacity to succeed.
