An easy-to-follow, yet complex, story about one organisation called ‘‘The Company’’ and how it prepares for the 4th Industrial Revolution, embracing the Digital Transformation agenda and starting their journey towards Business Excellence.
Sue, the CEO, is faced with making some difficult decisions. Her board wants to know what she’s doing to strategically position ‘‘The Company’’ so that it remains competitive in an ever-changing and fast-moving industry. She’ll have to implement a series of interventions that drive real change across 000’s of employees and enable them to develop the capabilities that are needed, exponentially. It’ll not only mean a mindset shift for many of her senior directors, and their teams, but also challenge and change existing and somewhat comfortable working practices.
Project managers in ‘‘The Company’’ will need to adapt their approach and become more Agile in their thinking and planning.
HR will need to reflect upon about how it needs to change to support such a transformation, whilst at the same time restructuring traditional old departments into shiny new flexible and adaptable working teams. Teams that focus on different areas of business growth drawing together expertise from several professional fields such as software development, business architecture, people management, recruitment and learning, new product development, service design, systems thinking, innovation and applied sciences to name just a few.
‘‘The Company’’ employs a workforce that spans four generations, many work in fixed offices whilst others out in the field work remotely around the world. Communication has always been difficult, but now it’s going to be even more challenging to adopt new approaches and Agile ways of working. She needs to act quickly though as her marketplace is changing fast, and all around her are those who market to customers their own achievements; not only winning business excellence awards but rapidly launching new products and services.
But there’s a problem: her executive leadership team. They’re less than supportive and seem stuck in a world of complacency and ambivalence.
What does she do now? How does she get them to work with her? What leadership approach is going to work best in this situation?
