Agile Organizations

Agile organization is a new set of principles and practices. It is also revolutionizing how businesses are structured and operated.
Agile organization draw upon their pool of talent to create highly flexible teams. These teams uniquely focus on a given task. Moreover, these teams have a high degree of autonomy. They are driven to be extremely responsive to the precise demands of the existing market for the relevant products.

The traditional model of a business involves a rigid top-down hierarchy with clearly defined departments or ‘silos’ that all workflow must pass through. But, this traditional organizational model is cumbersome. Because, it is slow to react to changing circumstances, and produces goods and services that fail to meet the full demands of the market.
On the contrary, a business that employs the principles and practices of agile organization will be composed of highly flexible temporary teams. Majorly, they are designed to deliver specific outcomes related to the company’s products.
Moreover, the end result is a system of dynamic and devolved decision-making. Basically, it is where the professionals with the best knowledge of an issue and the most direct contact with the relevant markets are able to guide the workflow toward optimal outcomes.
