To meet a high demand for speed, flexibility, and innovation many organizations strive towards becoming more agile. However, in large organizations “going agile” typically means implementing agile structures only in parts of the organization where the benefits are perceived to be the highest, for example, in IT, R&D or HR. In other words, it’s very rare that an entire large organization moves towards agile which means that agile organization design often has to co-exist with other – often more bureaucratic organization – designs.As such, the most important question for agile transformations becomes how agile can co-exist with other org. designs? This question is the focus for this NOCA event.
Dilemmas related to combining organizational designs
At this NOCA event we take a look at the dilemmas that can arrive from partial implementation of agile structures in large organizations. We will talk about:
- How to identify the right organization design for a specific team or function
- What happens to business processes and people processes when parts of the organizations go agile? What are the typical dilemmas?
- How can managers navigate between different leadership styles in different functions?
