Brave New Work Presents Ready For Anything Produced By The Ready

Ready For Anything

With Aaron Dignan And Rodney Evans

We were in uncharted territory. The global pandemic forced countless organizations to change the way they work overnight. But this opportunity is bigger than mastering remote work—we have the chance to adopt a way of working that will make us Ready For Anything. This thirteen-part series covers every dimension of The Ready's OS Canvas (as featured in Brave New Work) and explores how we can rethink areas like authority, structure, and strategy in times of chaos and uncertainty.
