Today we need to build more alliances and networks to enhance our abilities to 'connect' to the world so we can tap into the sources of knowledge that lie outside our own organization.

By looking outside we open up. More and more demands are being placed on us via our customers, suppliers, our regulators and a host of other stakeholders all wanting to contribute into our existing knowledge.

We struggle to adapt to these new external pressures but our structures, processes and systems need to adapt and support these changes. We need to acquire, anchor and and transform this flow of new knowledge into future new worth.

We all need to be more flexible, adaptable and agile so our resources grow their capacity to absorb and strengthen the competency and capability in new more dynamic ways.
