The Agile Organization: How to Build an Innovative, Sustainable and Resilient Business ( 2015 )
Given today’s context of tough change, organizations need to be able to innovate as well as develop and implement strategy quickly and efficiently. The key to this is agility – a set of capabilities that can help organizations to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances. At the same time, resilience is also essential if benefits are going to endure over the longer term and if employees are to be kept on board. The Agile Organization focuses on how to build both agility and resilience at individual, team and organizational levels.
It draws on a wealth of research, including the lived experience and learning of managers and HR and organization development (OD) professionals to show how it is possible to ‘square the circle’, becoming more sustainably agile while also enhancing employee engagement and resilience.
The Agile Organization showcases the latest thinking – new organizational models, ground-breaking themes and case studies – that illustrate how organizations are addressing the challenge of developing organizational agility. Packed with helpful checklists and practice pointers, this book is a ‘go to’ guide for senior leaders and managers, HR and OD specialists who want to help bring about organizational transformation and create the new resiliently agile ‘business as usual’.
