The best way to thrive in the midst of a disruption is to be the one to cause the disruption. The second-best way is to be agile enough to anticipate and respond effectively to the change.
Being agile is not just a popular software development process. Being agile in your workplace is all about optimizing your results. If you are slow to adapt to changes in what your customer values or shifts in your industry (or in this case, the world economy), you become less relevant and vulnerable to these external forces. Bottom line: Only agile businesses will thrive in these turbulent times. And an agile business requires an agile workforce.
Let me share an example of how one Federal agency had to move beyond 911 when their New York City offices were completely shut down by the events of that day. Check it out.
- Does it seem to take too long to respond to shifts in your workplace?
- Does your team respond quickly and effectively when something doesn’t work?
- Are your customers ever frustrated by how long it takes to adjust their product/service?
- Are your employees ever frustrated by how long it takes to adjust to their requests?
- Are all your employees fully engaged in optimizing your organization’s potential?
- Is your workforce fully anticipatory of changes in your customer needs? In your industry?
- How does your workforce react to change – with excitement or anxiety?
- Does your team have an established and effective process for pivoting efforts?
If your workplace isn’t energized by constantly changing circumstances, then they either don’t understand the value of the opportunity or they don’t have the process or tools to be confident of success. World Class Benchmarking has worked with legendary organizations who have successfully modeled an agile culture for many years – and can share their “behind-the-scenes” tools to thriving in difficult times like these.
