To begin, what is an “Agile Leader”? According to Forbes Coaches Council, “Agile Leaders can adapt to an ever-changing and uncertain environment. When you set out to be a continuous learner and have a growth mindset, you are always looking for ways to improve your product, your services and yourself as a manager and leader.”
In this age of technological advancement, it is a true challenge to company owners, leaders, and decision makers to remain on top of fast-paced development.
What’s a challenge that’s to be expected? As an Agile leader, how do we give solutions to them?
The Challenge: INNOVATION AND FINDING THE NEXT BIG SOLUTION
The Solution: AGILE LEADERSHIP AND CREATIVE COLLABORATION
Successful Tech Companies often obtain their own brand of Disruptive Technology, that gives way to industry recognition and larger market traction — think Apple’s revolutionary iPhone, or Google’s Quantum Computer.
Companies today face the challenge of coming up with new creative ideas.
A company’s ability to introduce the Next Big Solution is what will make them stand out in their industry. The Next Big Solution will stem from a boundless creative mindset.
Creativity begins with an Agile leader who inspires constructive solution engineering and productive collaboration.
The lack of opportunities for Creative Collaboration may stem from a disconnect between decision makers and subordinates.
The good thing is: Agile Leadership Structure may be able to bridge this gap.
- The divisive barrier between leader and subordinate is eliminated.
- There is an inclusive involvement in the outcome, which to diverse input and an increased anticipation for stumble points.
- The company moves efficiently as an “organism”, geared towards a common goal, instead of the traditional “silo mentality” that usually casuses disorganization.
With an Agile Mindset, opportunities are maximized and communication is open throughout the process. There are no barriers and hang time that hinder development.
An agile mindset that’s in sync with today’s technological pace could actually encourage the The Next Big Solution to come out of your next team planning.
