Adaptation and agility are critical in today's complex and unpredictable world because disruption is relentless and increasing. To succeed, organizations have to be able to react to disruption in real-time. By unleashing Adaptive Space, organizations are able to foster connections among people, ideas, information, and resources in order to make innovation and adaptability part of your organization’s DNA.
The key to creating and leveraging adaptive space is social interaction. Leaders and change practitioners need to deeply understand the power of social interactions to facilitate the flow of ideas, information, and insights into, and across, their organizations. By creating Adaptive Space, leaders can more successfully enable their organizations to respond to shifting external pressures.

● How Fortune 500 companies, large federal and other organizations, are leveraging Adaptive Space to become more agile and responsive to constant changes in technology, society and consumer/client needs

● Learn Adaptive Space tools and assess your organization’s readiness to undertake an Adaptive Space Initiative
