Capturing the Value of Project Management Through Organizational Agility
Can any company transform itself into a truly agile organization? In PMI’s view, agility is the result of numerous factors, among which the most critical is an organization’s culture of change—its ability and willingness to change. Organizational agility is a company’s ability to change or adapt rapidly in response to changes in the market or other areas of its external environment and to manage the associated risk. PMI’s research indicates that organizations that are more collaborative, communicative, and flexible have significantly better project outcomes. This presentation offers a framework for agility based on the fundamental aspects of culture, mindset, leadership, process and people.
