This year is The Agile Organisation 10th anniversary. Agility as a concept and specifically agile working has become a “must do” across all sectors and many territories during the last decade. We have helped many clients with their agile journey over this period and we continue to do so…..
What We Do
In essence we are agile working consultants. We bring together Property & FM, HR, ICT and Operations to help organisations develop holistic performance improvements through changing the way their people think, manage, work and operate.
We work with public, private and third sector clients to understand their business needs, their issues and opportunities and develop agile work, people and place strategies, implementation plans and guidelines that align with and support key corporate objectives.
We do this by gathering evidence through occupation, workstyle. workforce resource, culture and asset analysis, engaging with management and suppliers, assessing agile readiness, defining the purpose, glossary and vision, creating the communication plan, developing the strategy and framework the business case that highlights benefits risks and opportunities, planning and developing the journey programme for implementation of the workstyle, agile working, workplace and change initiatives as well as reviewing and benchmarking for successful outcomes.
WE HELP CLIENTS TO EVIDENCE, ENVISION, UNDERSTAND, DEVELOP, COMMUNICATE, GAIN COMMITMENT, IMPLEMENT & REVIEW THEIR ONGOING AGILE JOURNEY
