The majority of executives say that agility is a critical organizational capability, says Pamela Meyer, author of Agility Shift: Creating Agile and Effective Leaders, Teams, and Organizations. The irony is that most organizations aren't agile. They aren't doing it. If they are doing it, it's coming from a mindset that isn't agile. That's a hard pill to swallow. Leaders know they have to be more agile, responsive, and nimble. But there is still a belief that agility is risky. "What if we make bad decisions?" This is the wrong mindset because actually agility is about minimizing risk while delivering value faster to customers. We talk to Pamela about how organizations can shift their collective mindsets and become more agile.
