What is ORGANIC agility?
In a nutshell, ORGANIC agility consists of three pillars.
1) Capability-based leadership model
The new ORGANIC leadership model supports leadership growth as a capability, rather than only seeing it as a personal development initiative for leaders based on role. This is an important distinction - growing the capability of leadership throughout an organization requires building it into the organizational structure and culture. To grow leadership capabilities, we need to start building the ability, in ourselves and others. This will allow us to see the connections between what we do and the effect it has on our organizational culture, our environment and us as a leader. >> Rethink leadership: Learn more
2) Organizational scaffolding through five principles
ORGANIC agility is centered around five key principles that act as scaffolding for organizations as they evolve into being more adaptable and resilient. These principles act as a reminder or guardrails to ensure that as an organization grows and evolves it continues on the correct path until a point where they are ingrained into the organizational culture and no longer need to be explicitly called upon. Organizational agility is not a destination but a journey of continuous improvement. As long as an organization can be kept to these five guiding principles, it can continue to evolve and grow in a positive direction.
3) Tools supporting ORGANIC agility
There are key tools developed to support ORGANIC agility that include the Organizational Scan™ (OrgScan) and the Agile Strategy Map™. The OrgScan was developed in partnership with Cognitive Edge that utilizes their patented SenseMaker® technology and allows businesses to get a thorough and unbiased view into their organizational culture through self-documentation and analysis of decision making. Complementary to the OrgScan, the Agile Strategy Map helps you take the principles of ORGANIC agility and apply them in practice. It is both a true map and a living, responsive tool that lets you share your strategy with your entire organization and seamlessly connect planning with execution.
