Smart service support for agile working

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 approach that has been adopted by organisations of all sizes to address the complex demands of the modern workforce. However, the journey towards agile working has not been as straight forward as many organisations assumed. The concept goes beyond open plan floorplates and the provision of a variety of different work settings – it is embedded into culture and technology.

The success of an agile working policy is dependant on changes to the IT infrastructure, and on the delivery of smart technologies and services to support changes in workplace systems and behaviour.

The Covid-19 pandemic brought radically accelerated the adoption of agile working practices, opening the eyes of many organisations to the benefits of remote and flexible working. As a result the definition of ‘agile working’ shifted away from just addressing the use of space inside the office, towards an approach that embraces flexible and hybrid working. This shift required organisations to think more deeply about their IT infrastructure as a core element of their agile working policies.

But despite this acknowledgement, companies have not necessarily followed a clear path to adopting agile working, often adopting new policies ad hoc and without a clear direction. This often means that organisations have committed to facilitate agile working, but fail to make the full transformation to becoming a fully 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.
