Agility isn’t a buzzword—it’s the guiding light in this new world of work. Leaders can’t go far without reading about agile transformations or hearing colleagues tout the benefits of more dynamic ways of working.
In a new chapter of work already hallmarked by accelerated timelines and ongoing disruptions, there’s no question that agile organizations are best positioned to come out on top. COVID-19 may have been what put workplace agility on many executives’ radars, but the ability to rapidly shift gears will only continue to grow in importance during the pandemic’s aftermath.
By now, most leaders are aware of the benefits associated with embracing more agile ways of working. Yet, there’s still a lot of uncertainty about what workplace agility looks like in action and the steps businesses must take to devise more fluid strategies.
