“Organisational agility is the ability to pivot and feel comfortable with the idea that we are going to try new things. If it’s not working, we’ll stop and try a different approach.”

Mark Skinner, human resources director for digital at William Hill

87% of senior executives surveyed have been involved in transforming their organisation’s operating model in the past three years

Why are operating model transformations so popular and delivered with such regularity?

62% of respondents say customer experience is at the heart of the organisation, but nearly two-thirds (64%) do not believe they can exceed customer expectations.

Heightened customer expectation has become a defining factor for modern businesses.

46% of business leaders say the silo mentality between departments and teams, resulting in a lack of co-operation, is the number one barrier to progress.

An operating model transformation gives leaders the licence and opportunity to put everything on the table, in order to genuinely reinvent their organisation.
