Flexibility is often defined as being able to respond to fluctuations in the demand. But from a strategic perspective, flexibility is much broader: The ability to respond to environmental changes that may affect the survival of your company. This often involves flexibility in strategy, organizational design and behavior. For the inhabitants of Easter Island this was difficult. The same accounts for most organizations. The quest for control and efficiency has led to a vast set of rules, detailed job descriptions, complex reporting structures, rigid IT-systems and endless meetings. Reducing the capacity to react to everything that was not foreseen.
Strategic flexibility requires a degree of inefficiency and the acceptance that organizational systems are not always fully under control. We can help you to find a better match between flexibility, efficiency and control. Giving you the ability to adequately respond to opportunities and threats.
