Is your company evolving as quickly as the world around you? Probably not, but companies need to change.
Google and Apple are well-known for their ability to adapt to change. But most other ‘regular’ companies typically adapt at a much slower rate, which can lead to big long-term problems for your organization, so these companies need to change the way they change.
Experts predict that companies must evolve sooner rather than later in order to survive in an ever-growing competitive marketplace. Companies must be flexible and adjust continuously to meet the daily business challenges. Technology is playing a larger role in the increasingly faster rate of change and you need to make sure your company is prepared for it.
Your Human Resources (HR) department can create a dynamic environment that supports an organization suited for quick adaptation. HR departments can help improve the backbone of the business by focusing on a strong, talented management team. Talent acquisition matched with a solid training program can provide management (of all levels) with the tools they need to successfully manage change.
Read an excerpt below on an upcoming management hackathon.
To this end, we’ve launched the “Building an Adaptability Advantage” management hackathon. Over the next few months, we’ll be working with hundreds of other progressive HR and business leaders to identify, develop, and eventually implement new ideas for making proactive change a reality in our organizations.
Now it’s up to you. By participating in this hackathon, you can help to reinvent management for a new age. The ultimate prize? Organizations that can change as fast as change itself.
