It goes without saying that we live in a volatile world. Dr. Shemwell defined the Velocity of Information in his 2009 seminal work, Rapid Response Management: Thrivmg in the New World Order. Similar to the economic theory, Velocity of Money, it is the frequency at which information IS exchanged.
Moreover, the information exchange rate, already high will most hkely accelerate going forward. How does management drive an organization in this environment?
The principals at The Rapid Response Institute have spent years understanding, writing about, and consulting with corporate, government and non-profit clients, preparing them to more effectively respond to changes in their specific market environments. This effort culminated in the Rapid Response Management methodology.
Rapid Response Management (RRM) is an organizational construct or mental model that enables the organization and its key partners to rapidly sense changes and respond accordingly—quickly While it maximizes the effectiveness of management knowledge to address change, it is not "simply gut feel" Rather it is a simple yet sophisticated, methodical paradigm any organization can quickly and inexpensively implement
