The agile enterprise: Taking stock of learning agility to gauge the fit of the talent pool to the strategy

Agile enterprises make effective moves: pivoting at the right moment, finding resourcefulness to grow in difficult markets, seizing opportunities when others are uncertain.

So how can an organization measure its enterprise agility? Through its people and their distribution of learning agility.

Korn Ferry analyzed the talent components of five common business strategies: innovation, M&A, growth in new markets, customer loyalty, and consolidation/restructuring. For each, we developed an index that reflects the specific types of learning agility most needed among the workforce for that strategy to succeed.

By identifying the right agility index for their organization and establishing an agility-oriented approach to talent, business leaders will be able to:

  • Build agility enterprise-wide to support key strategic priorities.
  • Win when confronting today’s volatile and complex business landscape.
  • Drive performance by consistently placing highly agile leaders into can’t-fail roles.
