Increase Organizational Agility:
A Continuous Journey Towards Success
The fast-paced world of today is often unpredictable and disruptive. These changes can either become obstacles to success or stepping stones to greatness. Agile Meridian can equip you with adaptive practices and strategies to bypass disruption and navigate the unknowns that come at you every year.
What is Organizational Agility?
Organizational agility is the capacity of an organization to renew itself, adapt, and rapidly respond to change in a fast-evolving, ambiguous, and turbulent environment.
It involves the sustainable balance of speed, nimbleness, and responsiveness, underpinned by a stable foundation—a platform of repeatable elements that provides the stable backbone necessary for continual evolution.
It can also be understood as an approach that empowers your talent to be adaptive and effective, emphasizing rapid and continuous adaptation, promoting continuous innovation, and fostering an environment of flexibility, collaboration, and constant improvement.
This approach ensures the organization can respond to change quickly and efficiently, leading to a competitive advantage.
Why Is Organizational Agility Important?
The importance of organizational agility cannot be overstated. Today's volatile market, global economic uncertainties, and the rapid pace of technological advancement make it essential for companies to be agile. Embracing agility allows your organization to respond quickly and benefit from these changes.
Consider the case of Airbnb during the COVID-19 crisis. They exemplified strategic agility by being nimble enough to avoid the worst impacts, robust enough to absorb substantial damage, and resilient enough to accelerate forward faster and more effectively than their peers. Despite the devastating impact of the pandemic, Airbnb managed to adapt and ended the year successfully.
This level of agility is what we aim to instill in your organization. Our approach emphasizes the crucial balance between being agile and maintaining stability. We aim to help you establish a stable foundation to generate dynamic capabilities.
