Achieving operational excellence series


How to build an agile foundation for change takes an in-depth look at why agility is so important today and what kinds of challenges companies face in planning for change. The paper explores how today’s environment of constant change requires a new approach to agility and business strategy — an approach that is key to thriving amid change — not just surviving it.Organizations are seeing change initiatives happening at many levels, all at once. Instead of taking change as it comes companies must now address it in a more integrated and fundamental way.The costs of unanticipated and poorly-managed change are daunting. Inefficient, disruptive change programs can take a massive toll on a company’s people and lead to major productivity losses — but the failure to anticipate change can exact an even heftier price. Inflexible or outdated business models can lead to huge missed market opportunities and dissatisfied customers.
