There are still many deeply embedded perceptions and practices that inhibit the agility that companies demand, and the flexibility for which workers yearn. There seems to be a missing link; the link between organisational agility and individual flexibility.
The Ci Group’s 2005 Agile Resourcing programme set out to identify the ideal employment deals for tomorrow’s diverse workforce, together with evidence of how companies can increase scalability, versatility and flexibility. It included a new global survey of knowledge workers. The resulting "Manifesto for the New Agile Workplace" distils the outputs from the programme and seeks to challenge some of the assumptions about work that are preventing companies and individuals from achieving the kind of workplace each desires.
The Manifesto for the New Agile Workplace reveals ways companies can create an enterprising results-based culture.
