Leaders in organizations that leverage agile operating models have visibility and access to both internal and external skills and expertise, wherever it is. Workstreams within agile operating models look like mission-based projects, with the right people working on the right projects—both aligned with the company’s strategic goals and priorities.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544650135785{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Why does transitioning to an agile operating model matter to your company? The most important work in your company is cross-functional. Increasingly, it also involves both internal and external talent.
