About the book

Assessing Organizational Agility gives a simple, step-by-step guide to better change implementation. This book, written by two organizational researchers from USC's Center for Effective Organizations and a management consultant from Strategy& (formerly Booz & Company), explains how to measure an organization's agility and develop a plan to increase it. Beginning with a discussion of what "agility" means, the authors list the numerous contributing variables that influence how fast and efficiently an organization responds to change.

 

An agility survey allows readers to see how their own company compares in terms of perception and implementation, allowing them to create a "Agility Profile" that can highlight strengths while also indicating areas that need to be improved. Case studies showcase the real-world effects of effective agility strategy, and sample scenarios show how each agility "type" improves their reactions.

 

80% of large-scale firms fail to reach their goals, and insufficient agility is frequently to blame. Organizations modify their processes and procedures in response to changes in the marketplace, economy, and society, but planning and implementing change takes time. The context of the initial choice frequently changes during that time, putting the organization one step behind. The ability to quickly implement change without abandoning strategy is referred to as agility, and Assessing Organization Agility assists readers in:

  • Learn about the organizational and operational elements that influence agility.
  • Examine existing agility from all angles and identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Streamline change occurrences by implementing protocols and procedures.
  • Maintain your forward momentum by tweaking your strategy and putting it into action.
  • Technical, competitive, and environmental change are occurring at a faster rate than ever before, and reaction requirements are significantly more complicated and sophisticated. Agility might mean the difference between success and stagnation in this volatile market.

 

Assessing Organization Agility poses the questions and offers the solutions that lead to improved organizational reaction and response.
