Adaptable Organization

A fundamental shift in the way businesses lead, work and organize

The Adaptable Organization is a fundamental shift in operating and management philosophy that enables large-scale global organizations to operate with a start-up mindset and drive modern people practices that enable enterprise agility through empowered networks of teams.

Looking back on recent turbulent times, it has become self-evident that predicting the future is a risky endeavor. For organizations to recover and thrive in the longer terms it is critical to build adaptive muscles to quickly reorient themselves to whatever reality emerges.

To do that, a paradigm shift is needed in the way businesses lead, work and organize themselves. Today with 50% of companies still locked in functional silos and command and control mindsets, we are effectively using 'hardware' (structures) from the 19th century to run 21st century 'software' (ways of working), leading to unfulfilled corporate ambitions, and largely disengaged workforces.

Shift from a siloed to an adaptable organization

This calls for a change in the way businesses design their organizations so that they are based on our best human impulses rather than trying to control for our worst.

Our expert team can support your organization in the journey towards organizational adaptability by offering various programs and solutions that are focused fully on regaining robustness to dealing with future shocks and fluctuations in market demand.

Organizations that succeed in our changing ecosystem understand that they must be adaptable and empower their workforce by allowing them to focus on a clear mission. By analyzing human connections and using real-time network models, our suite of services can help visualize how decisions are being made and work is getting done in real-time, so organizations can be prepared for change wherever and whenever it happens.
