Diversité et Inclusion dans le contexte du Covid 19 - Africa Business School
Africa Business School organized a conference hosted by Pr. Loizos Heracleous on “Strategic Agility and the role of Renegades” in February 2020

Pr. Heracleous allowed the audience to embrace a new perspective on the organizational culture that enables agility. Usually, the common business culture suggests that renegades and rebels are troublemakers. Pr. Heracleous demonstrated through the lens of his research at NASA and Narayana Hospital that we need renegades more than we think. The conference stood out for the great heterogeneity of its audience. Which consisted of Columbia Business School alumni, current students of the ABS Master in International Management in partnership with Dauphine University, and other OCP and UM6P executives.
