IBM Global Services recently published the results from a study on Human Capital Management. The study interviewed over 400 companies from 40 different countries. One of the clear themes that emerged from their study was that developing an "An Adaptable Workforce is a critical capability."

Today's advancements in technology, globalization and new business models puts companies at an advantage if their workforce is prepared to adapt. In a rapidly changing marketplace staying ahead of the changes puts an organization in a position of strength. The problem is only 14% of organizations said that their workforce was very capable of adapting to change. So if adapting to change is a critical capability I have to ask why do only 14% of organizations feel prepared to adapt to change?
