Create Your Own Agile Organization Design - Because You Know Your Processes Best!
Creating your own agile organization designs is one of the best ways of creating the required agile and entrepreneurial mind-set. Go for it!
One of the biggest myths around agile organization design that there is only one right way of doing things. Quite to the contrary: You are the expert for your business and you know your procedures and requirements best. Therefore, your input in what to design for you is crucial for the success of the endeavor. Additionally, the engagement of your people in the design phase and not only in the implementation phase, saves you time and money in the long run, not to mention that it creates an unparalleled drive in your organization. What is important is that rough parameters of going agile are embraced. The rest can be designed to suit your needs by you and the members of your organization.
The principles of an agile organization are:
- team-based leadership
- opportunity oriented mindset
- seamless information flow
- continuous collaboration
- regular reflection to learn and exel
- work is organized in the simplest and most efficient way
- work is organized around roles, not positions
- the first and foremost goal is to create value
What is important is that how these features are implemented in your organization, resonate with you and your people.
