Masterclass 6 - Evolve Your Ecosystem Capabilities: Building Strategic Agility

Evolve Your Ecosystem Capabilities:
Building Strategic Agility

Today’s organizations, their leaders, and their people have become overwhelmed by the sheer volume and pace of change. Traditional management models and approaches that many still believe bring order to chaos, are instead stifling innovation while wasting the energy and talents that people need in order to respond. While organizational ecosystems have always incorporated the three main players (clients/customers, its people and its partners/suppliers), traditional organizations have tended to operate from an inside-out perspective that excluded customers and partners/suppliers. While the age of the customer introduced an outside-in perspective, it did not embrace the other two players. To thrive in the digital age, organizations need all three perspectives, as well as becoming organization-as- platform to continually evolve their ecosystem capabilities on the path to long-term resilience and sustainability. Strategic agility is the keystone in evolving an organization’s ecosystem while balancing the three perspectives.

Join AdaptiveOrg in this three-hour master class that will introduce chief strategy officers, executives and leaders to strategic agility, the keystone to success in the digital age. The digital age necessitates transformation across all facets of your organization including leadership, people, technology, and your partners and suppliers. The speed at which these changes need to happen demands you master strategic agility over strategic planning. Strategic agility moves you from trying to “predict and plan” what might happen, to where you can “sense and respond” to what is actually happening, while taking action with purpose.

It's time to focus on the human side of organizations and what sets them up for success. Understanding our purpose, elevating the importance of values and principles, and creating a relentless focus on creating value for those our orgs exist to serve, is how we can elevate the digital revolution into a human-centered one. 

My goal is to help people and organizations identify and focus on their collective purpose.

A leader in agile business value management, I delivered the first workshop on the topic in 2010 at BA*World Toronto and was a lead contributor to the Agile Business Value learning track of ICAgile. I have over 40 years of leadership, product development, business development, and operational experience in the Canadian and US public and private sectors.
