Publisher's Summary

"Nimble shows how we can anticipate and adapt to an increasingly chaotic world - and become better leaders, strategists, and innovators along the way." - Adam Grant, best-selling author of Originals

Cutting-edge insights for succeeding in times of chaotic change

Today's world is best described by one word: turbulence. Every leader today knows they need to be nimble, agile and resilient - but how?

In this engaging and insightful new book, management strategist and Wharton Fellow Baba Prasad sheds new light on the subject, and offers practical advice for executives, entrepreneurs, and anyone else who'll need the skills to face the unpredictability, risk, and deep uncertainty that lies ahead.

Filled with vivid examples and insights from around the world and throughout history - from the Brazilian rainforest and the "frugal innovation" of 19th century Indian engineers to Ericsson, Lego, Burt's Bees, and Zara - Nimble reveals what sets the most nimble leaders and organizations apart from the competition, presenting five types of agility that help individuals and companies not just survive but thrive in times of great change:

  • Analytical agility: Understanding the real problem
  • Operational agility: Driving leadership through action
  • Innovative agility: Finding creative solutions when you need them most
  • Communicative agility: Solving problems together
  • Visionary agility: Going beyond the here and now

It is possible to embrace change and uncertainty without sacrificing innovation and growth. Nimble shows you how.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Nimble shows how we can anticipate and adapt to an increasingly chaotic world - and become better leaders, strategists, and innovators along the way." (Adam Grant, professor at the Wharton School and New York Times best-selling author of Originals)

“You can't argue with the idea that enterprises of all sorts need to be nimble. The world is changing too fast, too suddenly, and in totally unexpected ways - lumbering momentum is no longer a guarantee of success in this business environment. Baba Prasad provides a powerful framework to make an organization - or a leader - agile, and illustrates it creatively with real-life business cases." (Daniel H. Pink, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post best-selling author of To Sell Is Human and Drive)

"The only constant in today's business world is change. In this essential book, Baba Prasad distills how leaders and organizations can embrace the constant pace of change to be more effective and accelerate growth. This book contains a wealth of wisdom for anyone interested in building a better business!" (Tom Rath, number-one New York Times best-selling author of StrengthsFinder 2.0 and Are You Fully Charged)
