Over the past six months, we as business leaders have reorganized even as the uncertainties of the COVID-19 crisis multiply, our goal is to rebuild for the longer term. We start with an idea— why not become an agile organization?

An agile organization is quick in responding to changes in market conditions. The agile organization is focused on its customer’s needs which call for tailored products and services.  The shared purpose and vision start with you and cascades down to every department and individual in your business.  The best Agile organizations live in and embrace the constantly changing circumstances. No one knows what the market will look like a year from now. So now is the time to begin to transform you and your people.

Your business needs to not only adapt to upcoming changes but also harness Agile as an opportunity to quickly meet market and customer demands and “out change” the competition. Therein lies the need for organizational agility. To reshape your organization to be more agile, start by focusing on three key areas: people, structure, and process.

  1. Recruiting flexible people that will become your dynamic teams
    • Look for candidates that are proven to be creative, collaborative, and analytical.
    • Hire individuals who:
      • Deliver results and insights as updated “course-corrections” occur in varied project assignments.
      • Focus on improving their performance as personal objectives.
      • Determine what adjustments are advisable for shaping, testing, and refining your processes.
      • Collaborate effectively.
  2. Restructuring your framework to data-based decisions
    • Develop team leaders that:
      • Communicate with each team shared objectives and metrics.
      • Encourage team members to make data-based decisions.
    • Verify the right information is visible to you and your Executives.
    • Determine how to progress, and insights are shared with your leadership team.
    • Define your feedback loop, so you are knowledgeable about the status of all activities.
  3. Restructuring your framework to data-based decisions
    • Modify processes and systems to adapt to customer and market demands.
    • Support the free flow of data, collaboration, and quick decision-making by improving your structural framework.
    • Foster a culture of collaboration and learning.
    • Determine how you can strike a balance between empowering teams to execute with speed and accountability and the quality of their decisions.
