How to improve your business’s agility

Every day in South Africa feels like being in a boxing ring, laments Aurik Business Accelerator Director and CEO Pavlo Phitidis.

Whether it’s political, economic or social ructions - you find yourself constantly ducking and diving to keep one step ahead of your opponent.

Agility is key to you surviving and thriving amidst the flurry of jabs, hooks and uppercuts that we face every day in building our business in this world.

But what is agility actually other than a sexy word that gets thrown about?

How do you create it in your organisation?

Who is doing it well right now?

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Phitidis for his weekly small business feature.
