Case study: How Novartis used skills to become a Dynamic Organization


After unveiling our Dynamic Organization research last year, Josh Bersin is back to spotlight companies that exemplify this approach—starting with Novartis. Join our discussion with him and Novartis’s Markus Graf to learn how the leading pharmaceutical company transformed into a skills meritocracy.

Josh Bersin and Markus Graf will join us to discuss the tools and strategies Novartis uses to earn a spot on this elite list of top-performing organizations.
