THE TOPIC

The ascent of the adaptive enterprise: the opportunity of the digital economy

Business leaders worldwide have had to respond to widespread disruption and unpredictability during the global pandemic, rapidly pivoting their business models, accelerating digital transformation, and up-levelling their online customer experience.

Research by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has shown that the capacity for businesses to anticipate change and swiftly adapt has been a major determinant of resilience and growth.

  • What core characteristics allow enterprises to be adaptive, and how can an innate ability to navigate change be a source of competitive advantage?
  • How are business leaders continuing to navigate uncertainty while unlocking new revenue streams and growth opportunities?
  • What strategies are business leaders pursuing in response to the growing momentum of eCommerce and the opportunities of the digital economy?
