Responsive Orgs: Leading from the Edges

Dani Johnson
Co-Founder & Principal Analyst


This article includes slides that summarize our Responsive Organization research.

Ever wonder what enables some organizations to take advantage of external disruptions and opportunities while others make do with small, incremental, run-of-the-mill improvements?

We did too. RedThread Research recently completed a study on Responsive Organizations – those set up to quickly adapt. Not surprisingly, people play a big role. Organizations that respect employees and share authority, encourage continuous growth, and build cultures of trust, fare better than their less responsive counterparts.

Join Dani Johnson & Stacia Garr, cofounders of RedThread Research, as they present their findings on Responsive Organizations. Specifically, this discussion includes:

  • A model for building responsive organizations
  • 4 layers comprising responsive organizations
  • Best ideas and examples from our leader roundtables
