business agility = productivity
what is business agility?
“business agilility” takes the concepts of agile project management and applies them to the wider business to create a high-performing organisation that maximises its productivity and creates a culture of ongoing learning and innovation.
business agiltity is about having the organisational flexibility to respond to an ever-changing environment and increasingly competitive market place. business agility is also about creating an adaptable organisation that establishes reliable processes and practices and a responsive, positive, energetic and creative workforce focused on delivering business and customer value.
business agility is not about software tools, certificates, standardisation or processes designed for “the lowest common denominator”. It’s not about staff incentives, “hiring guns” or squeezing people harder. Instead we focus on standardisation where necessary (e.g. for cross-organisational reporting and measuring) and outcome-driven management to ensure your teams spend more time on creating value and less time on “managing the process”.
who is business agility for?
business agility is beautifully non-discriminatory and is happy to have any and all organisations in their fold, from one-man-garage-bands to international, multi-billion dollar organisations.
business agility is a great framework for businesses that:
- want to focus on value creation
- aspire to “deliver more with less”
- strive to create a flat hierarchy without unnecessary management overhead
- look to continuously grow and innovate
- aim to build upon the concepts of iterative and incremental delivery
- want to incorporate the “lean start-up” approach and mindset into their day-to-day operations
so how do we get started?
every business agility journey differs as we take into account where you’re now, where you’d like to get to, how much time you can invest in your transformation and so on. you may choose to invest in your organisational and staff development with our internationally accredited certification course, deepen your knowledge by working with an expert coach or dabble a toe by checking out one of our free short courses.
