Building project team's capacity to respond quickly and intelligently to disruption and uncertainty while driving business value, browth, and benefits.
The ability to be agile and quickly change directions is crucial, but it becomes useless if not executed in a meaningful way. Project leaders and teams must have the capability for fast and informed decisions to keep the project progressing while focusing on the long-term business strategy.
Having the capability to spot early on new developments, new opportunities, or emerging risks is key to avoiding unmanageable complexity and resulting turbulence that could provoke additional threats to a project's progress and success.
Flexibility and adaptability are key to responding to sudden changes. Being open to new ideas and different approaches, anticipating project risks, and taking a proactive stance will boost a team's adaptive capacity. This will help teams prepare for and react quickly to changing conditions.
Inevitably, this calls for a more systemic, participatory, flexible, and context-sensitive approach beyond established agile practices, emphasizing the need for even stronger collaboration and engagement between project teams and business stakeholders toward broader knowledge and awareness of risks, changes, and constraints.
