Chaotics: A New Way of Doing Business for Increasingly Chaotic Times
Unlike past recessions, today’s crises have precipitated a need for businesses to develop a new mindset to remain successful that takes into account intermittent and unpredictable periods of turbulence and chaos, in what Kotler and Caslione now call, the new normality—one that is punctuated by spurts of prosperity and downturn. Chaotics presents a new system, and new set of strategic behaviors and guidelines designed to help business leaders and their companies navigate the turbulence to ensure their companies’ survival—and their ability to thrive—in the Age of Turbulence.

The great American shift is now underway. Is your company ready for it?
