Organizational Agility: Implementing Collective Creativity, Learning, and Knowledge

Posted November 4, 2015 in Business Agility & Software Engineering Excellence, Business Technology & Digital Transformation Strategies

As we explore in this Executive Report, Organizational Agility™ is the capability of an enterprise or partnering enterprises to rapidly adapt to internal or external needs through collective creativity, learning, and knowledge. Groups can learn to recognize these collective characteristics using the models of vision, Group Coherence, and process ambidexterity.

The Organizational Agility Maturity Rubric™ can be used to assess the maturity of Organizational Agility characteristics and target agility improvements.
