I see an impending change in our organisation's Environment (Market, Regulatory, Competitiveness, Technology, Scarcity etc.).
We are not very Agile, and time is limited to get key staff, to agree the need for, and scope of, the change coming down the line.
If we respond the way we have done in the past, and don’t act quickly, our performance will degrade rapidly (Loose; Market Share, Customers, Staff, Advantage, Money etc or miss an opportunity).
ODTI research and experience identified that by engaging key staff in an Organisation Agility Assessment and Analysis, in the context of the impending change, accelerates generating consensus on the need for, and scope of, the change required. Getting the first step of the change process, that is creating the motivation, sense of urgency, and coalition in place quickly initiates the change process rapidly.
Participants can quickly start to engage in the process of change through on-line survey.
The Assessment Findings are a catalyst to enable a safe discussion amongst key staff.
The initial discussion is based on facts provided by participants, and normative measurement of Organisation Maturity, allowing the key staff to discuss and conclude “We need to do this differently” recognising improving Agility is central to success.
The impending change can then be analysed and debated with a new perspective from the team.
Through the ODTI experience with successful change and transformation initiatives, which included Digital Transformation, M & A Integration, Turnaround, Collaboration and Performance improvement projects, key staff are on-boarded to the initiatives more rapidly than previously, and change action plans were calibrated to a level that had both traction and sustainability, based on understanding and building the Organisations change capability (Agility) as part of the process.
By using the OrgCMF Assessment, we were able to understand the People & Organisation Development actions that must complement the Digital technology changes, required to introduce a knowledge sharing and collaboration platform, intended to improve productivity and innovation related performance outcomes” CEO Global IT Professional Services Organisation.
Other organisations' have found that:
By surfacing those constraints on Agility (Resistance) up front in a safe environment with key staff they can be more promptly and openly discussed and addressed.
By understanding the strength of the forces that influence the organisation system agility, key staff can ensure change actions planned are such that they can be absorbed by people and teams and are synchronised with building Agility.
When considering the specific change catalyst, and need for the organisation, the key staff become more cognizant of the reality of their situation, and can more easily commit to a new and improved approach to quickly respond.
For a limited Period this month ODTI will provide a complementary key staff change mobilisation service to your organisation. (email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form below)
In a short virtual meeting (30 minutes) you brief us on your organisation context for an Agile Assessment, and we will advise on the Assessment approach.
You provide us with the email address of your chosen participants, or we will provide you with a link and unique Assessment code. (Set-up of the Assessment only takes a few minutes).
Depending on your chosen approach either you, or we issue a briefing email on the assessment context and instructions.
Participants complete the on-line Assessment (7 to 10 minutes to complete)
During the period the assessment is open, everyone can see progress and emerging results.
At the completion date or earlier should you request, the assessment is closed.
In a virtual meeting our expert reviews results with you and/or your team in the context of your change initiative.
This is the core reference model to address all 15 Organisation Dynamics (or selected dynamics as appropriate to the business or operational issue being addressed) that are central to the organisations operation and performance.
