And this is true not only in start-ups, but also in larger organizations. In this podcast, Balvinder Singh Powar, Associate Professor at IE Business School and Board Member and Director at Booster Space Industries and Aerdron, looks at the importance of soft skills and some of the ways of creating an ecosystem that will enable organizations of the future to advance more rapidly.
