Agile Organization


Agile workplace strategies are increasingly being adopted across a wide spectrum of organizational types. This is the result of its benefits regarding flexibility, adaptability, choice for employees to work in settings that best suit their individual work styles as well as their work needs, along with potential real estate savings. Much of this is fueled by the successes evidenced in coworking spaces and these coworking spaces are having profound influences on how we view and execute workplace design strategies. What is often overlooked and ignored is the fact that for an organization to successfully migrate to an agile workplace environment, that enterprises need to operate as an agile organization. That this important fact is too often missed and ignored, results in misused work environments that do not perform as expected and or are changed over time to revert to more conventional models. This presentation will explore why it is imperative for organizations to adopt an agile organizational model for an agile workplace strategy to be successful. the presentation will demonstrate the connection between the two components, how to integrate a change management program based on agility into the workplace design strategy process, and how to make the business case to organizational leadership of the interdependence of the two and most importantly, the organizational benefits of developing an agile organization and a workplace that reflects that agile model.
