Thriving in a Disruptive World: Developing True ‘Workforce Agility’
Companies are being disrupted more than ever. Competition appears exponentially; change is happening faster, and smaller companies are more agile than ever. The implication: today’s big corporations are seeking new ways to become more efficient, productive and ultimately profitable.
Larger organisations today have to exploit their fundamental advantages to beat the disruptors – their scale, reach, brand, depth, breadth and resources – but these advantages will only outpace the disruptors when leaders learn to re-configure their capabilities ‘in real time’ – to harness a ‘corporate agility’ that makes them an unstoppable force.
Real-time reconfiguration is possible and requires acceptance of one key fact: the most re-configurable part of every corporation is its workforce. While everything mechanical –requires years to change and billions in spend; people can be reconfigured to be more effective, more productive, more innovative, and this can be achieved quickly, inexpensively, and on an ongoing basis. A corporation’s ability to reconfigure its workforce is an essential survival technique, and a fundamental competitive advantage.
Join our workshop to discuss the opportunities and barriers to real-time workforce reconfiguration, share success stories and key learnings, and help us answer the question: ‘how can you harness data on people to improve your business performance, achieve real-time workforce reconfiguration, and sustain a fundamental competitive advantage over business disruptors’?
Workshop leader: Simon Haines (CEO at Simply Get Results)
Join the Simply team and other industry leaders to:
• Discuss and understand the current barriers to workforce agility in your business and help overcome them. What is preventing your organisation from being truly agile or proving the business case? What can we learn from the start-up’s and SMEs?
• Think more deeply about how data and analytics can help inform key decisions around reconfiguration strategy and identify areas for optimisation across all areas of the business. What data is and isn’t available to you and are the insights actually useful in making the big strategic decisions?
• Share experiences and learnings from your own career/organisation and gain insights from others on how businesses can prosper though workforce reconfiguration and increased agility. What opportunities and challenges does corporate agility present your business?
