The Impact of Work Force Agility on Business

Cover
Agility is an issue that is becoming more and more prominent in businesses across industries. While it is a common goal, its meaning can be somewhat ambiguous. Depending on the context, agility can mean different things to different organizational units. But one common thread persists: the accelerating speed of change. Change is not only driving organizations to keep up and anticipate, but more so to be its catalyst in order to be competitively positioned.

Change management has become a significant corporate undertaking because it is critical to business success. With emerging technologies, rapid innovation, new business models, regulatory compliance and fierce competition, change has become more intense and relentless. From this rapid-fire environment, the need for agility has emerged as a front burner issue.

This paper examines:

  • The qualities of business agility
  • Challenges the restrain agility
  • And how leadership, technology, business-critical information and other organizational aspects can improve an organization's agile ability
