5:20 PM L&D's Role in Enabling Organizational Agility for Sustainable Business Growth

Organizations lament about being blindsided by their competitors and “beat themselves up” about missing the next great opportunity. Meanwhile, organizational gurus write articles and books about how corporations should emulate start-up’s with their seemingly “magical” abilities to address market needs at just the right moment. Interestingly, no “gurus” write about the 1,000’s of failed start-up’s as they try and address the same market needs. Once an organization has a certain level of scale, duplicating the operations of a “single visionary leader” start-up could be disastrous for the company. Companies need to be able to balance the advantages of scale with ability to pivot quickly based on market movements. In this session, attendees will learn how to: 
•Enable a common meaningful organizational agility definition: Organizational agility and speed are not the same thing and how speed can be non-agile
•Differentiate and not confuse organizational agility with agile methodology
•Discuss the behaviors and traits of agile organizations
•Receive best practices for partnering with the organization to enable organizational agility
