Agile organisations for real

– fit for humans, fit for the future

In a world, where change is a constant, more and more organisations recognise the power of agility, as it impacts the way we strategise, organise and change.

We believe that developing agile organisations for real calls for more than organisational refinements, procedural adjustments or the addition of a few tools.

Instead, leaders of the future must revisit the fundamental assumptions and embedded beliefs that organisations are built on to reignite and reconnect with the inherent entrepreneurial DNA.

Many are already experimenting with ways to exploit the same advantages that start-ups benefit from, while aiming for more radical innovation. Starting by nurturing an entrepreneurial culture as opposed to just reacting to periodical crises.

Most large organisations will need to not only reinvent the business model to stay fit for the future, but also simultaneously rethink and experiment with management and leadership models to become fit for humans – an evolutionary development that holds extraordinary potential for unleashing talent, passion and innovation.

As management innovation becomes the norm, we see vanguards silently leading the revolution by democratising strategy, humanising the organisation and leveraging the collective wisdom to make change happen.
