“Culture eats strategy for breakfast”
What is Organizational Resilience and Agility?
Most organizations nowadays are operating in rapidly changing environments. To cope, they need to find adaptive ways to manage change. In other words, they need to enhance their internal capacity to constantly learn and innovate and become a learning organization.
But is this always the case?
As organizations grow, the capacity to learn and innovate usually decreases. Both, corporate structures and individual thinking become rigid, process based and short-sighted.
To remain competitive, organizations need to maintain knowledge harnessing and creating balance between resilience and agility at all managerial levels within the organization. Agility, on the other hand, sustains openness to new opportunities and fast reaction to change. Being both resilient and agile, an organization becomes adaptive, preventing “underexposure” to opportunities and rigidity or “overexposure” to risks and fragility.
Adaptive capacity enables organizations to know which of the two, resilience or agility, is needed most at a given time point. However, it requires leadership commitment and strategic planning. It implies the existence of shared values around a shared vision and the right mix of agility skills and experience.
