Leading an Agile and Resilient Organisation

Make sure your organisation gets to the opportunity space first

Building an agile and resilient organisation enables you to overcome obstacles, by designing systems and processes that allow you to move quickly.

In this Postgraduate Award, you will explore why agility in organisations is essential for success in an increasingly complex, volatile and uncertain world. You will take a deep dive into the concept of agility, and gain tools and frameworks, which will enable you to develop agile capabilities within your organisation. Through case studies, you will be able to see how these frameworks apply in real-life settings and build an understanding of strategies, structures and culture that reflect an agile and resilient organisation.

You will also explore the pivotal role of leadership as the driving force for agility, taking the time to reflect upon your leadership practice in this context.
