The need to prepare for disruption has become a cliché in the business world. Last year required agility in a way that was due to come eventually, but sooner than anybody imagined. It is becoming even more of an imperative to prepare your organization for possible turbulence and changes. By focusing on becoming more operationally agile, your team will be able to make faster decisions, better utilize your existing technology investments, and adapt to inevitable change.
The first question to ask yourself about your organization, then, is simple: Would your organization be able to survive disruption?
If the answer to this is no, it is time to build out the right digital transformation capabilities, culture, and structures for increased operational agility. Organizations that are more operationally agile don’t simply survive disruption – they come out the other side thriving. And with the right rapid-cycle innovation capabilities, empowering your entire business beyond simply IT, you can shift these efforts into high gear at your organization.
