An Overview Of What Enterprise Agility Is All About
Rapidly accelerating technological advances, consumer demands, and employee expectations are changing every part of our lives. Companies will, in effect, change how they work to succeed and thrive. Becoming an agile organization makes it possible for a company to improve execution speed, respond better, and adapt to customer needs, increase productivity, and engage and empower employees. In the end, an agile company will deliver shareholders higher returns.
Historically, the big ones beat the small. The scale was an advantage over many. Now, steady and steadfast rapid and efficient beats. New technologies, rising customer preferences, and changing expectations of employees are radically challenging existing ways of working in increasingly more industries. It is time to move beyond a rigid hierarchy, siloed business units, debilitating bureaucracy, and a structure that is becoming increasingly unprofitable. In today’s environment, agile companies combine scale efficiencies with pace, versatility, and agility to succeed and win. What is enterprise agility?
A Modern Working Design
It’s a vast undertaking to embark on an agile transition, but the rewards are great. Agile organizations move faster, adapt, and cultivate mindsets about ownership, resulting in higher productivity and lower costs.
Applicable broadly – not just IT.
It is assumed that agility principles can get applied throughout the entire organization, beyond just the IT department. An agile transition looks at different areas in the organization, where an agile operating model will generate value. For example, agility in innovation/development of new products can help a company move quickly from idea to prototype in a fraction of the time it takes today.
Agility = Dynamism + Stability
Agile organizations combine robustness with dynamism. Stable elements provide guidance, and the backbone is robust and scalable. A dynamic team network then significantly enhances pace, versatility, and ownership. The stable and dynamic elements reinforce one another, and both are essential for a truly agile organization.
