Rapid and disruptive change threatens the adaptive capacity of organizations, along with the individuals and teams leading them. Based upon over a decade of global research and consulting, Joseph E. McCann and John W. Selsky outline five capabilities highly agile and resilient systems must possess. They must be: Purposeful, Aware, Action-Oriented, Resourceful, and Networked. In addition the authors illustrate how these capabilities can be assessed across four levels--individuals, teams, organizations, and their business ecosystems.
The goal is to develop these capabilities in tandem so that the individual, team, organization and ecosystem have High AR--not just greater agility or resiliency, but both high agility and high resiliency.
