    Gain competitive advantage by adopting the best practices of established companies such as FedEx and CarMax, who successfully transformed their practices around people, processes, technology, internal partnerships and external networks.

    With increased pressure from digital natives, now is the time for established companies to address outdated and antiquated practices in order to respond quickly to the ever-increasing speed of market changes.

    The pace of change in business today is such that it is becoming easier to go from a legendarily high-performing company to liquidation in a short period of time. Getting to Nimble shares the stories of organizations that were able to successfully transform their people practices, processes, technology, ecosystems and strategy for the digital era. The book also covers once dominant companies like Circuit City and Kodak that neglected to change and were impaired or died as a result.

    Highlighting a framework to follow along with best practices that others can emulate, Getting to Nimble includes case studies from major organizations such as Capital One, FedEx, CarMax, The Washington Post, Domino's Pizza, Walmart and the country of Estonia.

  • One of the biggest challenges an organization faces as it grows is how to remain nimble. There are many forces at work in large corporations that layer in bureaucracy and attempt to mute its entrepreneurial spirit. In today's world, a company's technology is particularly vulnerable to falling behind and hindering marketplace agility. In Getting to NimblePeter High shows how technology is essential to any company's ability to adapt at the speed required by today's constantly changing market forces.
