“Long-term success in this era of fast-paced technological change and global economic shifts requires a new way of thinking and operating. In fact, the corporate playbook is being rewritten and replaced by one that takes business agility to a level we have never seen before.” — Lynne Doughtie, Chairman CEO, KPMG
We work and operate in a highly unpredictable and fast-paced world. Change is constant and guaranteed. In order for your organization to thrive your employees must be fortified in both personal agility and resiliency.
Resiliency is the ability to bounce back in times of adversity and deal effectively with the changes that come at us while personal agility is the ability to generate positive change by adopting a flexible mindset that promotes the generation and implementation of original and useful ideas.
According to a poll conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit, nearly 90% of executives indicate that agility is essential to business success. It is a critical pathway to higher revenues, customer satisfaction, and operational efficiency. Not surprisingly, agility is also connected to higher profitability and competitiveness over time. Research suggests that agile firms grow revenue 37% faster and generate 30% higher profits compared to non-agile firms.
But oftentimes in an effort to become more agile or innovative, companies focus on process rather than on people, when in fact, people are the drivers behind agility and resiliency to ambiguous shifts in the markets.
Resiliency and agility can be used in conjunction to stimulate a highly adaptable and prosperous organization and work environment. Learn how to put resiliency and agility to work for your organization with our new Organizational Agility Whitepaper.
