Adaptability is essential for sustained organisational success. It is the ability to identify the demands of situations and respond appropriately. This makes adaptability an exclusively people thing. Thus your ability to thrive as an organisation depends on how you manage and optimise your people.
Understanding this explains the claim that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” For, more than vision, mission, strategy and operational structure, organisational culture is the alignment of attitudes and behaviours that shape human interaction. To put it another way, culture is the manifestation of the degree of alignment around shared values and a common purpose. As such culture embodies adaptability – or exposes its lack.
Cement your adaptability and deliver the common purpose that ensures optimal human interaction, cooperation and collaboration with our ‘Every Individual Matters’ model. This:
- Recognises the organisation as a community of inter-connected individuals, whose understanding of stakeholder needs ensures adaptability and secures the collaborative effort that shapes the results of the whole; and
- Values each and every person, to create an organisational culture generating the synergy that sparks and sustains continuous improvement and transforms performance and results.
