Organizational agility is the capability of a company to rapidly transform or change in response to market adversities. It has become a key factor for corporate survival, especially to the emergence of new competitors, the development of new industry-changing technologies, or sudden shifts in global market conditions.
But, how can Organizational Agility be achieved?
A – Accept Change
In the actual world, companies already consolidated in the market struggle to become more dynamic. These companies have more challenges because they have had a centralized management hierarchy already established for ages.
Thus, they don’t see a need for change in routine because of the good results, but that’s exactly where deception is. If higher levels of management don’t fully understand this factor and if an organization’s strategic levels don’t view the continuous improvement process as vital, it will never give them any results.
G – Govern
Structure isn’t just about organizational hierarchy; it also includes governance. Moral and responsible governance is capable of improving decision making, as well as being significant for the stability of the company.
Stability contributes to dynamism in decision-making sending the message that each and every one who is part of an organization can give their opinions and can contribute which should be a stable element of an agile business’s operating model.
I – Integrate
Man, and machine must integrate with diverse technologies so that time invested in gathering company data and processes could be strategically optimized.
To create effective and logical sequence of actions in an organization, you need a Business Process Management (BPM) System like the TREEAMS.
TREEAMS can analyze, map and model processes, generate documentation, provide real time performance indicators and automate.
L – Learn
Study the process in its current state and design it with the help of TREEAMS, which is actually a set of specific BPM software. Some process flows can be complicated and require formulas, conditional steps, parallel details, and comprehensive reports. A good Business Process Management system has the ability to do these, as well as easily automate them.
I – Index
After the modeling and analysis of a process, followed by its development and redesign, only automation will allow the creation of a Management Dashboard like the TREEAMS where an organization can track these KPIs and summarizes the most important information a manager and team need to know in order to make decisions.
A KPI should be represented by numbers, called indexes, which are simple to interpret by the whole team. This will show whether or not they have optimized the processes performance.
Setting KPIs for processes that are not applicable to your business will only leave your management dashboard full of information that contributes nothing to decision-making.
T – Time
Contrary to some people’s view, process automation is not about replacing tasks performed by people with automated tasks. The aim is to gather and organize everything in a single platform to facilitate the delivery of the projects on time, to help optimize the existing procedures and to define an agile and competent work routine.
In fact, the TREEAMS encompasses several other features, such as system integration and the automatic collection of performance indicators in real time.
Y – Yearly Plan
A business without a plan is a business in free fall. Benjamin Franklin said it best: “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”
For starters, weekly plans and monthly plans are only used to resolve relatively minor issues at a time. These minor issues are usually reflected from lapses and unforeseen circumstances that have not been properly assessed in the annual plan.
With a Yearly Plan or Annual Plan, overall strengths and weaknesses from the previous year are taken into consideration. Consultations are conducted to discuss how things can be handled differently in the following year to avoid the same errors from happening. This will make it easier for a company to come up with suitable solutions and policies.
