Publisher's Summary

Adaptability is the key human trait. The ability to adapt faster and smarter than the situation is what makes the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win. Our history is a story of adaptation and change; and in the times of brutal competition and economic uncertainty, it has never been more important to understand how to adapt successfully. Using a series of powerful rules, Max Mckeown explores how to increase the adaptability of you and your organization to create winning positions. Fascinating real-world examples from business, government, military and sport bring the rules of Adaptability to life - from the world's most innovative corporations, to street-level creativity emerging from the slums. Adaptability is a powerful, practical and inspirational guide to success in uncertain times.

Critic Reviews

"This is a book of our times and the call for adaptability could not be clearer or more urgent. Whether we can respond with clarity and purposefulness is up to us but Mckeown's book gives many clues and clear and helpful examples of those who have succeeded (and failed) to do exactly that.” (George Kelsey, Chief of Innovation at The Royal Bank of Scotland Group)

Don't follow the old paths

make new paths! this book shows us cases where the common or expected way to do things would result in no improvement or progress and at best it would result in a state of stagnation.

we should learn from the past ways but always looking forward to improve them, this book give us that insight.

it teaches some concepts to see things as they are now and act accordingly, find bottle necks, come up with new concepts, observe and react!
