""Be ready to face and learn from increasing change. The trick is not to lose sight of one's acquired abilities and values but to find ways to continuously learn how to communicate and display one's own beliefs in different ways. Know that when you want to play in the big league, you are going to be very exposed, through social media and all that, and to be okay with that.
"You need to be quick about what you do and don't agree with, and to support that with your words and actions. Yet, keep a very open mind because you may discover soon, in the face of new knowledge, that you were wrong."
Dr Van Coller-Peter quotes Forrester Research's chief analyst Craig le Clair: "Companies must break away from the assumption of sustainable, competitive advantage and embrace adaptable differentiation, i.e. develop an agility advantage. Forrester defines this agility advantage or business agility as the quality to embrace market, operational, technological, cultural, leadership, political or any other changes as a matter of routine."
For the individual it would mean moving from an established expertise to constantly acquiring cross-functional skills."
