Today companies are expected to be flexible and both rapidly responsive and resilient to change, to both survive but also to thrive on disruptions. These challenges call for company-wide agility. Yet, doing Agile (the mechanics) is different from being Agile (the mindset). For example, substituting management meetings with daily Scrums or using a backlog for the board of directors doesn’t make a company agile.
In order to become truly agile (meaning flexible, responsive, adaptive, fast, and nimble), you need to think outside the (agile) box. Company-wide agility requires a holistic approach, a combination of different principles: First and foremost the principles of
- Beyond Budgeting (flexible budgeting & relative targets),
- Open Space (leveraging the innovative power of all employees),
- Sociocracy (flexible organizational structures and decentralized decision making), and –of course–
- Agile (inspecting & adapting).
We synthesized these proven principles into a wider perspective dubbed BOSSA nova: B = Beyond Budgeting, OS = Open Space, S = Sociocracy, A = Agile. Jutta will reveal a path toward company-wide Agility by showing the synthesis of BOSSA nova.
