Smart services for the post Covid-19 agile organisation
How can organisations make the transformation to becoming fully agile? This latest white paper from Signify and WORKTECH Academy explores an integrated approach to implementing an agile strategy from spatial design to IT infrastructure
Agile working is an idea that has been adopted by organisations of all sizes in the past decade to address the complex and unpredictable demands of the global economy. However, the journey to become an agile organisation is not as straight forward as many organisations assume. The concept goes beyond open plan floorplates and a variety of different work settings – it is embedded into culture and technology. Agile working depends on changes to the IT infrastructure, and on the delivery of smart technologies and services in support of changes in workplace systems and behaviour.

The concept of agile working is currently being tested on a global scale amid the Covid-19 pandemic. A massive involuntary experiment in home working has been an eye-opening experience for many organisations who are only now understanding what agile working really means to their workforce. Before the virus, agile working primarily referred to the agile use of space by people working inside the office; now the definition of agile casts its net much farther. And more than ever, it has become apparent that the underlying foundation of agile working is a strong IT infrastructure.
But if organisations facing the fallout of the pandemic now fully understand the urgency to become agile, the steps to implementation remain hazy and vague, leaving companies without a clear direction. This often means that organisations commit to facilitate agile working but fail to make the full transformation to an agile organisation.
In this white paper, WORKTECH Academy and Signify explore an integrated approach that organisations can follow to make the transformation to become fully agile. Read the whitepaper here.
