Transformation, agility, connected intelligence
In a volatile and unpredictable environment, organisations face complex, adaptive challenges. Solving them involves reconfiguring how diverse functions, levels and groups relate and work together along the entire value chain. This means the organisation needs to plan and implement transformation as a cohesive unit.
In our experience, many organisations struggle in this area. All too often issues such a lack of cohesion in the leadership team, rivalry between silos, friction between levels and roles, or a lack of leadership capacity mean the whole ends up being less than the sum of the parts - and transformation fails to deliver the desired outcomes.
We enable organisations to tackle complex transformation as a connected whole, while also developing the collective agility needed to remain resilient over time. We do this by developing the capacity for Connected Intelligence. It deepens awareness, transforms collaboration at all levels and realises the full potential of your organisation's most important assets - your people and their relationship networks.
Traditionally, we have engineered our organisations for certainty and control. In a disruptive environment, however, organisations cannot always predict the future or specify desired outcomes. Instead they need to sense, learn and adapt as a cohesive whole to what is emerging in the marketplace. This involves developing ambidextrous capacity, by learning to balance traditional mechanistic approaches to change with Connected Intelligence.
Connected Intelligence mobilises whole ecosystems around their most critical and complex transformation challenges. It breaks down the barriers between silos and levels, enabling the free flow of information and optimising collective problem-solving. Over time, it can be embedded within the business culture and operational processes - developing the collective agility needed to navigate an increasingly complex and uncertain future.
In today's volatile environment, agile organisations need to grow without sacrificing the collective agility required to remain resilient to future disruption. The problem is that most businesses end up sacrificing innovation and agility as the necessary price for growing in size.
Connected Intelligence provides a different path to growth for challenger organisations. By embedding whole system change capability in the organisational DNA, its culture and leadership, the organisation's ability to sense, adapt and respond as whole system to continuous disruption is preserved and enhanced - even as it scales.
