Thank you for contributing to the Business Agility Library. Please take a moment to read and understand what we are trying to do here;
At the Business Agility Institute (BAI), we believe that the next generation of companies are here. And they are agile, innovative and dynamic – perfectly designed to thrive in today’s unpredictable markets. Our goal is to advocate for, connect, & inspire these organizations to co-create an environment of knowledge & trust so that every company in the world can be part of the future of business.
This Library reflects the real-world challenges and stories of our members. It is intended to be a systemic, yet living, interactive document that provided companies with insights into business agility as well as practical guides and solutions on their journey.
The Library is not designed to be read as a book. Rather it is an interactive guide that allows individuals to find the information that is relevant to them at any point in time. Therefore, it is designed to allow visitors to dive straight to relevant content via the 13 Domains of Business Agility – as well as separate entry points by Industry and Function.
Therefore, if I’m the head of HR, I’ll spend most of my time on the HR Function section. If I’m in the Energy sector, I’ll spend most of my time in the Energy Industry. If I’m running a restructure, I might go straight to the Structural Agility domain.
There is a lot of content that exists in multiple places. Therefore, the content that you contribute in the Library will either be “guidance” or an “insight”.
Insights can come in multiple forms and formats. At the moment we’re looking for Case studies, Books Reviews, and Reference Papers. There is no restriction on content format. If you want to provide an article (text), link, video, or infographic – it’s all welcome.
