“I speak to many dozens of companies each year about the realities of working in Formula 1, a sport which features a great deal of technical complexity, constant change, uncertainty and unpredictability, yet which produces some of the best examples of teams successfully overcoming those challenges to become world class,” explained Mark Gallagher. “The Future Business Formula brings my insights from Formula 1 together with Adrian Stalham’s superb guide on leadership in a world of change and transformation. A VUCA world of volatility, complexity, change and ambiguity in which organisations have to deliver sustained success against a backdrop of constant, rapid change.”
Within the publication, 12 key principles for business success are identified and explored in depth, providing tools for thriving in a complex and fast-changing world. These critical principles are revealed throughout the book, allowing for a deeper understanding of practical strategies for navigating the complexities of the modern business world.
