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 visiting Wharton professor 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.
