Growing Adaptive Organizations

The Adaptive Organization

Organizations must be successful and “people-centric.”

They adapt, their structures support rather than restrict.

They focus on new skills: Learning and innovation.

Resilient is the new Efficient.

Succeed in a changing world

To achieve business goals, organizations need far more flexibility, initiative, motivation and
new capabilities

GRADO Community

The GRADO Community (GRADO = growing adaptive organizations) accompanies the journey to an adaptive organization. Travelers who wish to actively participate are welcome. We firmly believe in open innovation.

Agile Evolution

When embarking on the agile journey, only the first steps are visible,  there is no complete plan or timeline.

It is more than a simple revolution, it is a fundamental shift from a static to a dynamic view. A one-time event is therefore not a sufficient description -.
the hard work always began after the revolution

Transition and Evolution

Transition should have a focus on learning and helping organizations evolve faster, focusing on principles and values.

Although learning is also part of other concepts and frameworks, we consider learning to be a “first-class citizen.” It is not an afterthought.

It is time to put measures to develop an agile mindset and culture at the center of the discourse.

Agile Evolution

Agile Evolution is a business agility framework that starts with transition and identifies structures for continuous evolution. It is agnostic to agile practices, so it can be used in combination with one or more other frameworks.

Travel descriptions, samples, playbooks
