BDP Conference Economic Psychology (2012), presentation: "Securing the future: sustainable and measurable enhancement of agility in teams"
Teams feel the pressure of very quickly becoming functional, achieving results and reinventing themselves. The success of an enterprise depends more and more on performing sustainably on a high level and empowering the team to courageously take decisions whilst there is a high degree of uncertainty in the variables determining the outcome. Therefore team competencies have to be measured and the important elements determining agility have to be enhanced. Our innovative approach combines a systematical diagnosis, an agile model for improving the competencies and a clear evaluation of the desired target.
In our understanding "being agile" means, for example, having a high degree of self-responsibility, adjusting quickly to new demands, being able to take calculated risks and build a positive culture of dealing with mistakes.
