Accelerating strategy using digital technology

A guide to leader-led behaviour change

Janellis have run a series of transformation related events attended by a cross-section of organisations.

Cosgrove leads CBD executives to stirring realisation

I recently wrote about working with Governor-General Peter Cosgrove on defining organisational resilience at the executive and board level.
