Forget Lean and Agile – It’s Time to be Anticipatory

Forget Lean and Agile – It’s Time to be Anticipatory

Wie wichtig es für Unternehmen geworden ist, die Zukunft zu antizipieren und sich auf Veränderungen vorzubereiten, beschreibt DANIEL BURRUS in einem Artikel:

We are all good at reacting and responding, putting out fires, and crisis management. In addition, organizations large and small have learned how to be lean and agile, and how to best execute a strategy at a high level.

Business VisionHowever, despite these skills, General Motors still declared bankruptcy, Blockbuster closed its last store, and Blackberry quickly moved from leading to bleeding. And let’s not forget Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Dell, and a host of other companies who failed to thrive despite its leaders and workers being constantly busy.

To thrive in this new age of hyper-change and growing uncertainty, it is now an imperative to learn a new competency—how to accurately anticipate the future.

That may seem impossible, but it’s not. The future is there for you to see when you know where and how to look for it. And when you and your employees master this skill, you’ll be able to create what I call an “anticipatory organization.”
