Why Organizations Need to Reform to Be More Agile

Growing market competition, escalating demand, innovative technologies, and new regulations, everything has imposed an unforeseen pressure on organizations to adapt to new skills.

However, adoption alone cannot work wonders for the growth of organizations. They need to harness change in a bid to meet current market and customer demands. The need to fill the gap has given birth to the term agility.

Challenging Change

In this article at CIO, the author defines agility by quoting McKinsey & Company’s report that says, it is the ability of an organization to quickly renew itself by adapting to new trends. This clearly means organizations need to bring flexibility at all levels, without losing grip over the processes been practiced for years.

This might sound confusing, but the existing processes bring uniformity in your organization. Sudden reshuffle might leave employees confused and incompetent.

Design Your Way

The author brings focus on three easy steps to infuse a hint of speed and flexibility in the ongoing process and help you gain a competitive advantage:

  1. To change, start from scratch. Implement agility in HR by implanting a new way of hiring that enables shortlisting skilled resources over curious, creative ones. This will help you form a much flexible team that is open to change as well as challenges.
  2. Eliminate complications by enabling task ownership at all levels in the organization. To do this, managers play a pivotal role. They must establish open communication about work objectives and encourage desire for improvement in the teams. This would surely bring required changes and tone down traditional hierarchy that leads to elaborate chain of communication for a single task.
  3. Establishing systems that have high scalability might prove helpful in mastering agility. Organizations that are open to change need to maintain processes that offer free exchange of information, teamwork, liability, and fast decision making, apart from addressing other requirements. In fact, fostering the process of team learning is equally beneficial.

Changes are healthy only when implemented with the right approach and strategy. The author narrates how experimenting with new processes can bring better results for your organization.
