CoachingOurselves is pleased to collaborate again with Marilyn Laiken, formerly of the University of Toronto, on our newest discussion guide, “The Key to Organizational Agility: Managing Paradox”.
“Organizational agility requires two conditions — one is a dynamic capability, the ability to move with speed, nimbleness and responsiveness, and the second is a stable foundation of things that don’t change. Agility represents a set of paradoxes which are the key challenges for organizations in today’s context. “
This topic will help you:
- Understand the concept of “Organizational Agility” as a set of paradoxes;
- Reflect on your own workplace within this framework;
- Determine actions you can take to move your workplace towards becoming an increasingly agile organization.
Clarify which aspects of your organization need to provide stability through established structures and processes, and which aspects will enhance organizational effectiveness through innovation and speed. Assessing these organizational paradoxes from time to time will allow your organization to keep up with turbulent, volatile conditions, in addition to greatly enhancing your employees overall work experiences.
