Innovation & Agility Services Overview

Increased complexity drives higher uncertainty and accelerates the rate of change across the global economy.  Organisations designed to exploit well understood competitive advantages over the long term, following relatively brief periods of exploration, must now explore and exploit pretty much in parallel to survive and thrive.  Such situations require organisations to go beyond transformation to develop their adaptive capabilities.

The need for radical change and reinvention is top of mind for many executives.  Some are finding that organic models borrowed from biology – embodying ideas such as holistic purpose, self-management and evolutionary change – are often more helpful than the mechanistic metaphors on which traditional industrial enterprises are based.  This service offering from B2E employs these organic models to foster innovation and agility at scale.

How will Innovation & Agility Services help you?

As the complexities of business, technology, economy and society increase, it is not good enough just to be able to change; organisations need to become adaptable. In short, we need to develop our capabilities for innovation and agility so that we have the capacity for continuous change.

Typical Business Challenge

Although innovation and agility are considerations for many leaders across most sectors faced with increasing complexity and uncertainty.  Some examples of such challenges include those triggered by:

  • Digital disruption, including those resulting from developments in Big Data, AI and Blockchain, and the associated need for rapid and ongoing business transformation
  • Multiple cycles of post-merger integration (or indeed post-divestment separation), with the often urgent need to drive renewed organisational effectiveness and efficiency to achieve the expected returns
  • Pressures to retain and develop talent, including leadership, as workforce diversity, employment models and individual aspirations evolve
  • Ever-changing customer expectations from millennials and other demographic groups
  • Start-ups seeking to lay the foundations for innovating at scale
