Course Overview

“The concept of the agile organisation is the most predominant in dealing with unpredictable, dynamic and constantly changing environments” (A. Muduli)

Organizational agility is commonly quoted as been critical to successfully adapting to rapidly changing business and work environments – and towards future-proofing our organizations and our workforces. However, as a deliberate organization wide strategy, Agility is often still inconsistently defined and unevenly executed.

This course addresses the practical challenges of becoming a more ‘agile organisation’. We help participants advance the debate regarding Organizational Agility from being an aspired value and concept towards being an operational, cultural and consistently applied capability across the organisation.

How Agile is your Organization from the perspective of its strategy, structures, processes, people and systems?
