How to Develop Organisational Agility
How to Develop Organisational Agility. Many organisations want to develop greater agility and better knowledge management in the face of uncertainty and change. A new study looks at what it is that helps to create greater levels of agility and intelligence / knowledge management capability.
- The big 3 factors for organisational success during times of change
- Organisational learning as a mediator
Three main factors are coming out of the research as being key to the ability of organisations to survive and prosper in the current hyper-competitive and rapidly changing world are:
1. Organisational Intelligence
2. Organisational Agility, and
3. Organisational Learning.
A new study has looked at the links between these three factors to investigate the nature of the relationships between them.

Organisational intelligence is seen as the capacity of an organisation to create, store, disseminate and strategically use up-to-date knowledge to further its goals and develop competitive advantage, or in the public service industry to achieve its social aims.
This is the ability of an organisation to rapidly adapt and respond appropriately to changes in the environment, intelligence / knowledge or markets or to create change so that either they gain competitive advantage or achieve their aims.
This is the ability and capacity of the organisation to systematically learn from the intelligence it has and the situations (experience) it finds itself in to develop and improve in its mission or goals. Organisational learning is how an organisation changes and stays relevant as the environment shifts and changes.
The researchers found that organisational learning is the ‘mediator’ between organisational intelligence and organisational agility. In other words, it is that ability and capacity of the organisation to learn that underpins its agility and use of intelligence.
This is an important finding because efforts to improve organisational agility or organisational intelligence really need to start by increasing the capacity of the organisation to learn. Increasing learning capacity is the key to how to develop organisational agility.
