The COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies to adapt in unprecedented ways. More than ever, learning agility – the desire, capability, and skillset that allow people to navigate change and uncertainty – has become critical to organizational success and can lead to new opportunities. 

In this episode, Syneos Health® experts, Karen White, Vice President of Human Resources and Kiely Flanigan, Director of Global Medical Affairs from our consulting team, discuss why learning agility matters and how it can add value to business areas across the pharmaceutical industry, from global drug launches to the increasing number of rare disease therapies.
