Title: Compass for Agility
Description: The Compass for Agility provides a pragmatic and personalized approach for identifying the cultural elements required for an organization to pursue Business Agility and for delivering the cultural transformation required to sustain a more Agile way of working for everyone within the organization.
This session will identify some of the cultural elements for business agility include identifying the current and future state of foundational abilities such as:
• Decision-making – how and when are decisions made? Who can make decisions? Are decisions visible, and if so, to whom and how? How are decisions validated?
• Alignment – what is the degree of alignment between organizational efforts currently? Are initiatives designed to leverage off each other or are they in competition?
• Responsiveness: to what degree can the organization receive and recognize feedback? Is feedback internalized and contextualized?
• Engagement: to what degree are workers engaged with organizational mission, values and activities? Do people feel like they’re empowered to ask questions or to make changes?
The Compass for Agility’s unique combination of discovery and delivery techniques ensure that business agility effort is grounded by the its culture, i.e. the establishment of organizational capacity and capability to deliver that change sustainably.
