Relentless Adaptation

How great companies are innovating to win.

We obsess over innovation. But innovation is overrated. If you look at the smart companies that are prized for “innovation,” you see that they are actually masters of “adaptation”—of knowing when to adjust, when to speed up, and when to capitalize. It’s not about being first; it’s about being flexible. In this thrilling new talk, Amber Mac looks to leading organizations, many of which she covers for Fast Company, to explore the practice of relentless adaptation. Is your company taking advantage of disruptive new technologies, or simply being disrupted by them? A newly adaptive corporate culture, defined by digital technology and bold leadership, is fundamentally changing business—and Mac has had her ear to this fertile new ground for years. From voice technology and 5G, to the democratization of content creation and growing influence of culture, this big picture talk sheds light on how to win in our fast-forward economy.
