Building the Foundation for Organisational Agility - Breakfast WorkshopIn Person
Agility refers to an organization’s ability to gather and act on information, make decisions quickly, and implement change to meet rapidly-evolving needs of customers and the business environment. There are many things that can inhibit an organization’s ability to be agile: bureaucracy that slows down processes, internal politics that prolong decision-making, silos that obfuscate the root causes of problems and ownership of solutions, and a lack of trust that makes communication difficult, to name just a few. When these barriers to agility exist, the fix isn’t simple, but neither is it insurmountable.查看日期和地点
We’ll review the latest research on the role of agility in adapting to the rapidly evolving workplace. We’ll discuss agility specifically in the context of the massive changes that are anticipated from the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI), and we’ll talk about a framework for leaders, addressing important considerations for those who want to approach building agility within their organization in a deliberate way.
No amount of data will help a company become agile if there’s no genuine desire to listen to what the data says. And those who lack confidence often lack the courage to truly listen. Its critical for leaders to have a clear understanding of why it takes more than smart people and good data to become agile.
Agility involves seeking out new information and embracing continuous change in a collaborative way – without resistance, bias or resentment. Agility Makes a difference: 81% of executives consider agility to be the most important characteristic of successful organizations. More agile companies report a 60% faster time to market and 59% faster innovation.
