The adaptive organization is no longer new – but it is still a difficult problem for many companies: The era of rapid change requires new approaches and skills from both organizations and individuals.
Every company is different – and yet there are many experiences to learn from. Patterns of what works and what doesn’t work.
The Growing Adaptive Organizations (GRADO) program aims to collect such patterns and prepare them so that practitioners at different levels of experience can benefit from them without creating a rigid, “one size fits all” blueprint.
The ability to learn and adapt in short cycles requires a paradigm shift in many ways.
We want to help managers understand
We use the metaphor of a travel guide, because every change is also a (learning) journey. Full of surprises, unexpected twists, new discoveries, but also great disappointments. Nevertheless: it is always an exciting journey
We believe that there is no best way to convey information.
Growing Adaptive Organizations is a“special interest group” of the DACH30 initiative. Here you will find work in progress and our ideas to bring to these communities.
