THE ROAD TO TRANSFORMATION
2017 AJLI Annual Conference: Disrupt Convention
As the leaders of any large organization know, change is inevitable. Market forces, cultural norms, the health of the economy, the political climate and industrial innovation all exert a profound influence on an organization’s will to thrive. In this complex ecosystem, the survival of the organization pivots on its ability to adapt quickly—and in a way that intuitively ensures its relevance for years to come.
Among the diminishing number of organizations with lifespans of a century or more, the stakes are even higher. Whole generations have lived their lives in the time the organization has been around, and with those generations have come breathtaking alterations of the cultural, political, economic, and philanthropic landscape.
