Becoming Agile In A Fast Paced World
Becoming agile in a fast paced world
Any organization can become agile, but agility is not a purpose in itself; it’s the means to a broader purpose.
The reasons for moving to a lean-agile culture need to be explicit and visible to all – backed up by the entire leadership team – in order to realise success. There also needs to be a realisation and willingness to sacrifice fundamental parts of the current way of working: traditional hierarchy, detailed planning and solution steering in favour of empowered teams and experimentation. The prize is an organisation that is ready to face any challenge.
Agilicist promote a 3 step approach to realise true agility at scale across the organisation
Creating purpose, meaning and direction through consistent, invested and resilient leadership. Setting the destination and defining the end-state vision from the outset is crucial.
The ability of the organisation to exploit opportunities more quickly, effectively and consistently than its competitors; creating better products which are delivered faster.
Instilling innovation, learning and collaboration through the development of people, teams and environments to encourage an agile mindset and behaviours across the organisation.
