Unlocking the Future of Management: The World Management Agility Forum

by Hugo Lourenço - CEO of Agile Thinkers, organizer of the World Management Agility Forum

In an era where change is the only constant, the World Management Agility Forum is as a beacon of innovation and transformation for leaders and organizations worldwide. It's not just an event; it's a revolution, inviting you to rethink the boundaries of what's possible in Management and Leadership. The forum represents a premium opportunity for managers and executives to explore, learn, and adopt the agile principles that are reshaping the business world.

The Call for Evolution in Management

The traditional command-and-control management style is becoming increasingly obsolete in today’s rapidly evolving marketplace. This paradigm shift highlights three significant challenges that need an evolution in management thinking and behavior:

1. Resistance to Change

  • Fixed Mindset Organizations: In environments where loyalty to tried-and-tested methods is valued over innovation, companies often lag. For instance, Blockbuster's refusal to acknowledge the potential of digital streaming services led to its downfall in the face of Netflix's rise.
  • Growth Mindset Organizations: In contrast, companies like Amazon thrive on change, constantly diversifying their business model and embracing new technologies to stay ahead.

2. Lack of Employee Empowerment

  • Fixed Mindset Organizations: Traditional management often equates to micromanagement, where employees feel undervalued and set to the side. This approach can demotivate staff, leading to decreased productivity and innovation.
  • Growth Mindset Organizations: Google, however, champions employee autonomy. It encourages its workforce to dedicate time to creative projects, resulting in groundbreaking innovations like Gmail and AdSense.

3. Inflexibility in Facing Market Demands

  • Fixed-Mindset Organizations: Companies rigid in their operations and unwilling to adapt to market changes often struggle to effectively meet customer needs. Kodak's reluctance to shift focus from film to digital photography is a stark reminder of the consequences of such inflexibility.
  • Growth Mindset Organizations: In comparison, Apple's continual reinvention and focus on user experience have kept it at the forefront of technological innovation and market leadership.
