Status : Current   Published : January 2019



What is this PAS about?

Markets and technology move very quickly these days. To prosper, organizations have a greater than ever need to nurture the capacity to be agile. This PAS therefore gives guidance on the concept of business agility and also supplies frameworks with practical guidelines on how to tackle improving business agility at the strategic as well as the operational level.

Who is this PAS for?

It’s for use by any organization wishing to improve its business agility and will be of particular interest to organizations facing rapid changes likely to impact adversely on performance. The PAS will be especially useful to industries in the public and private sector where there is hyper-competition, specifically:

  • Smartphones
  • Banking
  • Food retail
  • Automobiles
  • Utilities
  • Appliances

The PAS will also be useful to non-profit organizations, universities and some government entities that need to handle regulatory responsibilities such as foreign affairs and legal cases.

Why should you use this PAS?

To flourish in an increasingly chaotic and unpredictable environment, organizations need to develop new ways of understanding their agile capabilities, agile culture and probable future.

This PAS proposes frameworks to aid understanding and the development of new approaches to building business agility. It covers how the organization:

  1. Identifies business agility challenges
  2. Identifies key industry and market drivers
  3. Assesses probable future trends, changes and uncertainties
  4. Aligns strategies with future mega and micro trends
  5. Identifies dynamic and agile organizational capabilities
  6. Identifies cultural barriers to agility
  7. Reinforces agile human and other resources (dynamic capabilities)
  8. Enhances an agile culture

The PAS covers major business aspects from an agility perspective and recommends that an organization reviews strategic and operational levels. It provides practical frameworks for boosting agility across both levels.

NOTE: This PAS does not cover tactical organizational issues.
