Vertical Agility

A Developmental Organisational Operating System (D.O.O.S) for accelerating the future of work. 

 

Through our work with organisations we realised that the way leaders and employees deliver and execute work goes through a series of hierarchal stages. This falls directly in line with the latest research in Vertical Leadership development. 

So we set out to map this progression in several domains, those being: mindset and culture, value creation and work delivery. 

You can use this framework to place your current approach and plan your journey towards more progressive and agile ways of working in the future.

We believe that organisational agility can only be achieved by the support and integration of two core aspects of Agile methodologies:

 A Recent Case Study

"In Agile Transformation, culture eats technology for breakfast

Sixteen months ago I started working Chris Ford and the senior leadership and the IT function at SA Power Networks. The mandate was simple, help us become Fit for the Future by assisting the digital transformation and embedding completely new ways of working, that involve being agile as opposed to just doing agile.

Transformations of any sort are notorious for being slow and tedious, with as many as 80 - 90% of failing in the end. This one however has been a resounding success, and it all comes down new ways of working, team work and leadership.

“Technology has changed, of course, but I think the changes in management and leadership techniques and ways of working are just as important. Though I lead the technology function my real focus and strength is in people leadership, the development of capability and team building.” Chris Ford, General Manager IT and Innovation, SA Power Networks. People often ask me investment in the Future of Work and new ways of working actually produce any visible business outcomes or results, I’ll let you decide, SA Power Networks:

  • Australia’s Digital Utility of the Year for Energy 2018
  • Australian CPMO of the year 2018
  • Chris Ford awarded No 5 CIO in Australia 2018 (up from 11th in 2017)
  • Digital Utility Award for ‘Best Use of Technology’ and ICT Project of the Year at the 2018 SA Australian Institute of Project Management.
  • Employee engagement - 70% in 2017, 90% in 2018/19
  • Digital Utility of the year for Energy in 2019

“Today’s fastest growing, most profoundly impactful companies are using a completely different operating model. These companies are lean, mean, learning machines. They have an intense bias to action and a tolerance for risk, expressed through frequent experimentation and relentless product iteration. They hack together products and services, test them, and improve them, while their legacy competition edits PowerPoint.”
