Our Point of View

Innovation—and competition—is faster and more frequent.
Agility is required
Meeting evolving market demands and employee expectations requires fast, efficient adaptation.
What is an agile workforce?
An organization is only agile when its workforce is agile.
An agile workforce is made up of smaller, cross-functional teams, reducing bureaucracy to get work done faster. Leaders in an agile workforce have visibility and access to both internal and external skills and expertise, wherever it is. Workstreams of an agile workforce look like mission-based projects, with the right people working on the right projects—both aligned with the company’s strategic goals and priorities.
Why does building an agile workforce matter to your company? The most important work in your company is cross-functional. Increasingly, it also involves both internal and external talent. But organizational silos and ingrained behaviors can stifle collaboration, obstruct opportunities, and result in waste. Business agility, to be effective, must permeate your entire workforce, not just executive leadership.
