As contrary as it sounds, "planning" - as we traditionally understand the term-can be the worst thing a company can do. Consider that volatile weather events disrupt trusted supply chains, markets, and promised delivery schedules. Ever-shifting geo-political tensions, as well as internal political upheaval within U.S. and global governments, derail long-planned new ventures. Technology failures block opportunities. Competitors suddenly change their product or release date; your team cannot meet the pace of innovations in your market niche, leaving you sidelined. There are myriad ways in the current business environment for a company's well-considered business plans to go awry. Most business schools continue to prepare managers to be effective in stable and predictable environments, conditions that, if they ever existed at all, are long gone. The Agility Shift shows business leaders exactly how to make the radical mindset and strategy shift necessary to create an agile, entrepreneurial organization that can innovate and thrive in complex, ever-changing contexts. As author Pamela Meyer explains, there is much more involved than a reconfiguration of the org chart and job descriptions. It requires relinquishing the illusion of control at the very foundation of most management training and business practice. Despite most leaders' approaches, "Agility is not simply accelerated planning." Unlike many agility books on the market, The Agility Shift provides specific, actionable strategies and tactics for leaders at all levels of the organization to put into practice immediately to improve agility and achieve results.… (mais)

Whereas agile is the buzz word of today's software development, the real shift to agility beyond a single IT team, department or start-up, still to be embedded and practiced more. The Agility Shift by Pamela Meyer brings together experiences from very different fields, from improvisation theater, Toastmaster speakers to 3M, and UPS. Organizations nowadays are confronting volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCLA). Companies that are able to turn challenges into opportunities have a competitive advantage, as shown by the different reactions and outcomes of Ericsson and Nokia to a same fire at a supplier's facility.
Everyone agrees that there is real, tangible value in being more agile. No one argues the actions the pilot of US Airways 1549 took to safely land his passenger jet on the Hudson river, bypassing discussing air traffic control officials. Meyer draws from thinkers like Simon Sinek (Start with Why), J.R. Galbraith (there is no best way to organize), Claudio Ciborra (locating the dynamic present between panic and boredom), realistic optimism, and presents the 3 Cs of Agility Shift: confidence, competence and capacity. The book's a great treasure for leaders seeking Make Shift Practices to acquire the right people, empower and coach along the way. There's a lot of time spent on new ways to learn and practice. Despite most leader’s approaches, “Agility is not simply accelerated planning.” Forget the annual strategic planning. The agility shift embraces the creative tension between planning and preparing. The relational web is a great tool to identify relevant, responsive, resilient, resourceful and reflective actions to put into practice tomorrow. Meyer has lots of references, games and examples to help you out. ( )
