Change is, now more than ever, the only constant you can depend on in business. Ensuring that everyone in your organization is equipped with the tools to develop Learning Agility puts you in the advantageous position of not just dealing with change. You’ll be able to capitalize on it.
What’s Learning Agility? It’s the ability and willingness to learn from past experiences and then subsequently apply that learning to perform successfully under new or first-time challenges and situations. And it’s what will give your organization the competitive edge.
The argument for organizational Learning Agility.
A Bersin study found that organizations are currently encountering three primary business challenges:
- Expansion and growth to meet market demand while reducing costs
- Accelerated innovation (including the ability to act in an agile and creative environment in order to thrive)
- Rapid change in the market
Meeting these challenges requires your organization to be forward-thinking and strategic. In short, you need to be agile. Taking an audit of everyone within your organization allows you to strategically align the talent within your organization. You’ll be able to empower your highly learning agile leaders, and help everyone in your organization build on the factors most important for their roles.
