Change Agility – Adapting Effectively

An Agile environment is one that is quick in responding to changes in the marketplace or environment. The ‘agile organisation’ is also known as ‘the entrepreneurial organisation’ and ‘the resilient organisation’ and this kind of organisation focuses on the customer which calls for customised rather than standardised offerings. A highly agile environment reacts successfully to the emergence of new competitors, rapid advancements in technology and sudden shifts in overall market conditions. Agile enterprises thrive in non-hierarchical organisations without a single point of control.

Change agility at a personal level refers to an individual’s ability to anticipate and adapt to change. To strengthen our agility during times of change we need to stay positive; stay connected; stay focused and stay organised.
