When teams are not working well, there will be low morale, deadlines not met, and consumers dissatisfied with the end product.
When teams stop delivering, it can usually be worked through with a form of diagnostic or a retrospective where teams analyse what could be done differently or improved to generate a greater sense of purpose or a more clearly defined goal. Introducing new ways of working into an organisation, will help reset and reconfigure how the organisation operates, with the result being more functional teams, better return on investment and faster speed to market.
Embed an Agile Operating Model to always be aligned as an organization on customer-centric goals.
ADAPTOVATE helps businesses to re-design their operating models to be customer driven by creating high-performing collaborative teams who better adapt and respond to evolving customer needs.
The three key enablers in an agile operating model support the transition to a customer centric organisation.
Broad alignment on purpose
Clear strategic narratives and objectives are built around meeting the highest priority customer needs. These objectives are reviewed on a quarterly basis to adapt to the quickly evolving landscape.
Autonomy and collaboration
Cross-functional teams are created around customer centric missions, hence removing silos and communication barriers. An innovative and intentional culture provides autonomy to employees to deliver the best solutions.
Empowered people with authority
Teams are empowered to act on delivering solutions within their area of the customer journey resulting in greater adaptability and increased speed to market.
