Agility: make your business more competitive

Phibonacci - Agility - FI
When studying the evolution of animal populations, it soon becomes clear that agility, or the ability to adapt to ever-changing conditions, makes the difference between survival and extinction. Likewise, agile businesses, with the strong ability to adapt to new conditions and change their direction accordingly, have the highest chance of survival and success. As agility is an essential business lever, your organization should be tuned for it.
It is not the most intellectual of the species that survives. It is not the strongest that survives. The species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.

You want to be in top shape for an important match, don’t you?

In sports competitions, you need to be in top shape to compete and maximize your chances for victory. Likewise, your business is in rivalry. Your business too needs to be in top shape to maximize its chances for survival. Just like in sports, you need to evaluate permanently, to find weaknesses and opportunities for improvement and to train and tune to become even better. While it requires your efforts and perseverance, a good coach can help you and do wonders.

Agility more than ever required

While the need for agility has always been there, the skill becomes all the more important as the speed and impact of changes increase. Over the last few decades, companies have increasingly been confronted with more disruptive trends:

Embedded impediments

Companies with a classical multilevel hierarchy, with power concentration at the top and strict procedures for decision taking, entail restrictions on creativity, innovation and speed and brake as such the value creation on the floor. These companies are characterized by silos, with own priorities and targets, making parts of a service or product, but not creating customer value on their own.

Appropriate action to unlock value creation

A change to mandated and well-equipped teams is required, focusing on customer value creation from end-to-end, with (servant) leadership creating the context to do so.

The digital era requires agile companies, having the competency to adopt rapid change.

Phibonacci has successfully implemented agile organizations and has been creating optimal customer value in such contexts. In the project search section, more information can be found regarding its Business Agility expertise.

Tuning your organization for business agility requires the adoption of agile values, methodologies, artefacts and ceremonies. While they might seem straightforward, the actual implementation is often challenging and complex, since it impacts hierarchy, work habits and culture and requires discipline at all levels.

Often changes to the system landscape are required to enable for an agile organization. As such agile organizations both consume and facilitate digital transformation.

Business agility is the essential business lever resulting from an agile organization. Business agility is a permanent necessity and therefore the continuous improvement of the agile organization, in order to optimise the business agility, is embedded in the methodology.
