When the chips are down, the best businesses become more aggresive in pursuit of their goals, but are increasingly flexible on their strategies. The same applies to you! Stop searching for jobs and start engaging as if you are already doing the job you were meant to.
In this rapidly evolving global context, we can no longer rely on small iterations and improvements, in order to keep the pace. The need to make an informed move has never been more important.
