Organizational Agility, October 1 2020
How do you form an organization that supports Agility? Few frameworks answer this question, yet it is a critical problem that has to be solved by each company that wants to be Agile. If you see Agility as a mere process question, your improvements will stall before you have gotten out of the starting blocks.
In this class, we walk through key patterns used by successful companies along their improvement journey, why they were used and what issues they address. They range from small to big, from line managers’ responsibility to strategy alignment. This toolbox will help you shape your organization as it improves over time.
