Making Agility Compatible For You

Paul Hobcraft

Is Agility compatible for many working in established businesses? “To To be agile” is often a badge of honor. Agility is today going far beyond just being responsive,it goes into constantly adjusting and being versatile, modifying to meet rapidly changing conditions. The challenge is to keep the stability but to build around it a more agile, dynamic set of capabilities. Also today our organizations are falling behind in their innovation.

Caught in the Headlights of Disruptive Innovation.

Paul Hobcraft

This past weekend I had an extended period of re-reading about the effects of disruption that seems to be occurring across all points of business, our politics, our governments, it seems across our lives. All good plans sometime get disrupted. So I had some time on my hands so I decided to go back over the whole area of disruption to get a broader understanding and how this is driving so much within our innovation activity at present.

We Can’t Stop Disruption

Moves the Needle

Developing an agile innovation strategy

Idea Drop

Agile project management involves dividing tasks into short phases of work, or ‘sprints’, with continuous reassessment and adaptation of plans. Stemming from the word agile, meaning to move quickly and easily, it is no surprise that such a methodology goes hand in hand with innovation. Yet this discernible link is too often overlooked and it is exactly this refusal to acknowledge the compatibility of innovation and agile processes that frequently leads to innovation failures.

Organizational Agility Entails Complementary Innovation

Integrative Innovation

Recently, I’ve come across a couple of posts and articles debating on the question: In order to increase agility, should organizations aim to become more nimble across their existing structures or should they capitalize on separated units/ventures – such as Innovation or digital labs – being dedicated to initiate and develop explorative ideas and opportunities? Improving organizational agility entails complementary transformation and innovation streams.

Innovating in the midst of chaos and disruption

Jeffrey Phillips

But, as you are well aware, this is not a blog about poetry, but a blog about innovation. Kipling wasn't writing about new product development, business model change or innovation, but what he is writing is entirely applicable to our situation today - first quarter 2021. Waiting for chaos or disruptions to end before adapting loses ground in two dimensions. We are likely to have far more disruptions, market shifts, economic challenges than ever before.

Daniel Burrus

Organizations that have adopted an anticipatory mindset and culture enjoy a variety of powerful advantages over those that rely on strategies that simply aren’t as effective as they once might have been.
