Building Strategic Agility
Building Agile Teams

A New Business Paradigm Requires an Integrated Approach to Strategic Agility

Bringing together teams with the right mix of individuals and expertise to respond quickly to emerging market shifts, competitor moves, technological innovations, and customer demands is both more important and more challenging for businesses today. Meeting these challenges with greater agility means leaders need to reconsider how teams are formed and sustained. Agile teams will need to adapt how they collaborate, seek solutions, make decisions, and take ownership of outcomes, and do so quickly.

Course Description:

In this course, we will explore a new approach to teams that enables a continuous cycle of:

  1. Socialization that derives greater value from connections, relationships and networks
  2. Positive agitation that challenges current business models, questions default thinking, seeks opposing opinions, expects uncertainty, and embraces change, and
  3. Synergies that create opportunities to share and combine ideas, resources, expertise, or credit — to create a greater outcome
