Today’s world is changing at an unprecedented rate and we are witnessing both technological and cultural change occurring faster than ever before. Presently, business expectations, needs, and demands are evolving too, as organisations ostensibly live or die on their ability to quickly adapt. In this climate, people in practically every role must now focus on customer satisfaction and deliver continuous improvement in their day to day work.

Many organisations are struggling to navigate these disruptive times. Others seemingly navigate with ease, demonstrating adaptiveness, creativity and resilience when dealing with the complexity and uncertainty they face. What makes these organisations stand out is their ability to adapt quickly (to market changes), respond rapidly and flexibly (to customer demands), and continuously innovate and have a competitive advantage. Using uncertainty and change as an opportunity to become better. These organisations have embraced Business Agility.

Agility, in a business context, is the ability of an organisation to rapidly adapt to changes in the most productive and cost-effective ways. Business Agility is crucial for organisational survival in these uncertain, volatile times. It changes how you think, how you work and the way you interact with people. Such change is vital at every level of the organisation, from the operations floor to the C-Suite.

Our Business Agility Foundations programme is the start of the agility journey. It offers a strategic appreciation for leaders to jumpstart learning on how to thrive with the complexity and uncertainty, in order to deliver successful outcomes for their organisation.

This two-day immersive course examines what it means to be truly adaptive in today’s dynamic environment. With practical workshop-based learning designed to help leaders focus on the essential elements necessary to deliver better performance and business value to their business and their customers.

Catalyst have been working in partnership with the Agile Business Consortium (ABC), the not-for-profit professional body for Business Agility, to develop the Business Agility Foundations (BAF) course. The course will be accredited by ABC and their BAF Certification will be awarded on the successful completion of this course and the related exam*.
