Technology, “the practical application of knowledge” is a term more commonly used in the context of Information/Digital technology, but also encompasses “Management Technology”, the practical application of management knowledge and best practices. The combined development and application of both the “industrial” and “management” technologies of the last centuries has driven the enormous increases in innovation, productivity and quality of life achieved over the last 200 - 300 years.
Service and knowledge work organisations have displaced their industrial cousins as the dominant economic force and advances in digital technologies are transforming the economic and social landscape. Today, in order to be competitive, organisations of all types need to have a compelling value proposition, a well-designed business model and the ability to execute extraordinarily well. To survive into the future, organisations also need the agility to learn, adapt, reconfigure and respond to the increasingly complex and changing digital environment in which they operate. Our Agile Business Execution Canvas® helps organisations assess their current organisational agility and develop a road map to bridge any gaps or weaknesses.
Organisational agility therefore is the ability to reconfigure strategies, structures, processes, people, and technology towards value-creating and value-protecting goals. To achieve this, organisations need to invest in both Digital and Management Technologies to improve the performance of the organisation as a "whole system". Expertivity Technologies are Master Practitioners in the disciplines and best practices of both these technologies and are uniquely placed to assist organisations develop and apply them in tandem.
