Special WEN Talk: Dynamic Capabilities: How Australian firms can survive and thrive in uncertain times
In uncertain times, businesses play a key role in fuelling economic growth and innovation. They require dynamic capabilities to sense opportunities and threats, allocate resources effectively, and adapt through renewal and transformation to not just survive but also excel.
CEDA Senior Economist Melissa Wilson will unpack the results of the first broad survey of dynamic capabilities of Australian businesses, conducted by CEDA and University of Technology Sydney. She will discuss what the survey results mean for businesses and the economy more broadly. This unique research is the first of its kind in Australia, and will ultimately inform future efforts to lift the capabilities of Australian businesses. Her presentation will be followed by Q/A.
Both men and women are welcome to attend. The event is open to public.
The Women in Economics Network aims to promote and support the careers of female economists and foster greater gender equality and inclusion within the economics profession in Australia. If you would like to show your support for WEN, we invite you to consider joining or renewing your membership.
