Businesses are struggling to keep the pace with rapid rate of change and disruption around. To keep up with the change, businesses try to diversify into newer areas, build products and services to cater to new market needs and innovate. Organizations on their transformation journeys cannot afford to rely only on the technology innovations because innovation is a result of something more deeper – innovation is a result of mindset, behavioral constructs, leadership and culture.
At ThoughtWorks blog, Aaron Sachs and Anupam Kundu have written an excellent post titled “The Unfinished Business of Organizational Transformation” where they outline the mindset shifts required when transforming the organizations to be more adaptable and agile.
The most profound business challenge we face today is how to build organizations that can change as fast as change itself. – Gary Hamel
(HT to Helen Bevan for sharing the post.)
While you can read the full post here (highly recommended), I created a quick sketch note to outline the shifts in our mindset and the need to balance between behavioral constructs to nurture change and enable organizational transformation.
“The goal of the transformation is to allow the organization to collectively define and measure new behavioral constructs that allow the organization to “inspect and adapt”: find the balance between the following opposites enabling it to respond with urgency.”
