 Leadership Agility became a necessity in this rapidly changing (VUCA) World. Agility cannot be achieved without a change agent who is expected to play beyond a simple manager role. 


Leadership Agility and Transforming The Organization 

There are three secrets to successful transformation, these three secrets respectively are; Agile Purpose, Agile Design, and Agile Culture.

1- Start with the Agile Purpose: 

Leaders seek first to find the right direction. The first characteristic leaders ought to create is to clarify a precise, shared, and persuasive purpose for their organization. 
Rather than the standard executive team practice, in agile organizations, leaders first seek to learn and sense. Then leaders will be able to draw out the organizational bigger purpose in discussion with key stakeholders across the organization.

2- Finished with the Purpose? Congrats, it is time to move to the Design.

Leaders should use the principles and methods of agile design. Design refers to the ability of setting the strategy and the ability to design an operating model for the organization.

Both of these designs should be based on agile organization principles and practices. Most senior leaders of traditional organisations have an insufficient skill level in this area.
 This insufficiency reflects the traditional mentality, which results in traditional design. These traditional designs generally are very concentrated, and they produce a static system. This represents huge limitations in response to changes. This limitation can strike organizations in any field of business, of all types and sizes.
To design and build an agile organization, leaders need a different set of skills based on a different understanding of organizations. They must learn to design their organization as a distributed, constantly evolving system. Such a design comprises a network of smaller empowered teams. It includes fewer layers in the hierarchy, more transparency, and thinner governance than a standard model. 
More specifically, leaders must understand how to decomplex current large organizations into a more flexible portfolio. They should learn how to change corporate operations into a lean, empowering backbone. 

3- Finished with the Design, Move to Agile Culture.

Once Design finishes agile transformation leaders should work on spreading an agile organizational culture. They should have the ability to shape a unique culture across the organizational functions and levels.

 The new culture should be resulting from the creative mindsets of discovering, Building partnerships, and upscaling.
Given the honesty and autonomy individuals experience in an agile organization. Culture plays a more significant role here than in traditional organizations. 
To determine the norms of this culture, leaders must learn how to launch an integrated culture transformation program. This program should gets along with the needed capacities and desired behaviours. This includes the following steps:
  • Role Modelling the agility mindsets and rewarding favourable behaviours. 
  • Promoting knowledge and confidence in a positively interactive way, through spreading narratives.
  • Getting inspired by the energy and thoughts of frontline team members.
  • Building Agility mindsets and capacities across the organization, including among the frontline positions.
  • Enforcing Support Mechanisms within the agile organizational design.
