Focused, Fast & Flexible™


Bob Seelert, Chairman Emeritus, Saatchi & Saatchi

“The VUCA world of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity is upon us – whether we like it or not. This book lays out the roadmap for surviving and prospering in these dynamic and challenging times.” 

Mark Nelson, President, ARAMARK Higher Education
“Even in the most successful organizations – danger lurks. It may take the form of complacency where maintaining the status quo, doing those things we have done well for years will continue to ensure our success even when we know the world around us and our competitive set continue to evolve at a much faster pace (VUCA). Tom and Nick helped prepare and mobilize our team for what lies around the corner – change and transformation at lightning speed. The Agile Model helped our managers see the world through the lens of opportunity – to anticipate what truly is around the next bend and to create resiliency for the challenges ahead…and winning in the marketplace.”

Kim Saunders, Retired CEO, M & F Bancorp and Mechanics & Farmers Bank
“If you were in the commercial banking industry during the recent finical crisis, you know that this cycle was a VUCA world on steroids. I am convinced that Agility Consulting’s work with our bank prepared and propelled us through the crisis in a manner that allowed us to not only survive, but thrive during the crisis.”

Kevin Toomey, CEO, Kayser-Roth Corporation
“The fashion business, driven by consumer trend and innovation is already well immersed in VUCA and accelerating at an increasingly rapid pace. Successful companies of the future will need to be not only Focused, but Fast and Flexible at the same time. The Agile Model, outlined in Tom and Nick’s book, provides the steps to competitive advantage in the future and coping with all aspects of VUCA.”

Mary Eckenrod, VP Global Talent Management, Johnson Controls
“Nick Horney and Tom O’Shea have taken their extensive experience with CEOs and executive teams dealing with unprecedented change and complexity, and are sharing the lessons and tools with all of us. Focused, Fast & Flexible is not a superficial ‘how to’, but is instead a practical and comprehensive guidebook on sustainable change for today’s leaders.”
