Understanding adaptability : a prerequisite for effective performance within complex environments /

Adaptability is becoming a hallmark of effective performance at all levels and types of organizations. As complexity rises within the internal and external environments that organizations operate within, it is no longer acceptable to be able to perform well when things go as expected; instead indivi...
