From Make-and-Sell to Sense-and-Adapt by Stephen Parry
From Make-and-Sell to Sense-and-Adapt: Shaping the Business and Work-Climate towards Agility, Adaptiveness and Differentiation
Adaptive business is a transcendent leap beyond mere process and efficiency gains. Becoming an adaptive organisation means managing a transformation from the old world to the new.
It means rethinking and reimagining how and why we work, to achieve harmony with market evolution, no matter which way it turns. You can’t control market evolution, but you can control your own.
- Business Agility is about creating organisations that embrace continuous change and continuous value creation to differentiate the business and generate long-term profitability.
- We will look at how some large organisations have made the journey from traditional “Make and Sell” approaches to Agile and Adaptive “Sense and Adapt” businesses.
- We will also examine what needs to change in the organisational infrastructure and how changing the mind-set, skill-set and work-climate are the new keys to unlock potential.
