What is agility?
It’s about QUESTIONING everything. Just because you did it that way yesterday doesn’t mean we should do it that way tomorrow. In the Social Age, change is constant. Doing what you always did won’t work anymore. Question everything. It’s a good habit for agility.
LEARNING is constant if you’re agile. If you’re not learning, you’re stagnant, lethargic, stuck. Agile learners reach into their networks and communities to create meaning. They use technology to access knowledge and refine it, filter it, to create meaning.
REFINING is the process of filtering out the meaningless and contextualising the rest. Agile learners and social leaders do this constantly, curating a reputation for quality.
DOING is better than thinking too hard. Agility is about getting stuck in, but constantly refining. It’s an action research mindset, about making mistakes and learning.
MISTAKES are inevitable: organisations that want to be agile need to create permissive environments for us to trip up in as we learn.
EDITING is how we refine our actions, how we make the small changes that make us agile.
NARRATING is core to agility: do it, then reflect on it, then share how you did it.
In the Social Age, only the agile will thrive.
