BOSSA nova: Beyond Agile – Preparing for Digitalization
Digitalization calls for rapid organizational flexibility and adaptability. This has an impact on all dimensions of a company: its strategy, structure, and the processes. Agile will help implementing some of this flexibility and adaptability yet mainly in terms of processes. But true organizational agility doesn’t result from simply “trying harder” by e.g. substituting management meetings with daily Scrums or using a backlog for the board of directors.
Thus, the digital transformation needs companies to look beyond Agile and look for principles that guide us in developing:
• Continuous improvement strategies necessary to enable self-sufficiency and adaptation in every department - not just the software department.
• The executive and board roles in driving organizational agility.
• Processes, strategies, and structures that enable the current culture to self-organize for company-wide agility.
Company-wide agility requires a holistic approach, a combination of different principles: First and foremost the principles of Beyond Budgeting, Open Space, and Sociocracy provide the missing links for a company to fully embrace digitalization. The combination of these concepts enables a company not only to survive but also to thrive (digital) disruptions.
