Faculty of Engineering and Sciences UAI will hold a discussion with experts in business agility and adaptive capacity

The Diploma in Business Agility from the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences of the Adolfo Ibáñez University will hold the discussion “Adaptive capacity and the need for Business Agility to achieve it”, together with Juan Carlos Eichholz, author of the book “Adaptive Capacity: how organizations can survive and develop in a changing world”, and Eduardo Lobos, specialist in organizational transformation and Business Agility. The meeting is free and will take place Thursday, June 6, at 18 p.m., via zoom.

Business Agility is a set of organizational capabilities, behaviors and ways of working that give companies the freedom, flexibility and resilience necessary to achieve their purpose. The talk will address how to identify and improve the ability to adapt to organizational changes and how, through Business Agility, organizations are trained to achieve this objective.

The meeting will feature the exhibition of Juan Carlos Eichholz, lawyer and Master in public policy from Harvard University. Currently, he is a senior partner at CLA Consulting, an international consulting firm specialized in leadership and organizational change, with extensive work in companies and institutions in Latin America. He is also the author of the award-winning book “Adaptive Capacity: how organizations can survive and develop in a changing world”, columnist for the newspaper El Mercurio, international speaker and member of the Young Global Leaders network of the World Economic Forum.

In the opinion of Eduardo Lobos, Academic Director of the Diploma in Business Agility of the UAI Faculty of Engineering and Sciences, as well as a consultant with extensive experience in organizational transformation and Business Agility, “This tool (Business Agility) allows companies to instinctively capture opportunities emergent and unforeseen events for the benefit of your customers and focus how work gets done across the organization. It's not just about processes and procedures. They are principles and ways of thinking that lead to new organizational behaviors and norms.”

Companies that embrace agility harness the innovative and collaborative power of their people to meet the challenges of the modern world. They dynamically respond to those challenges by continually experimenting, learning and adapting how they work and what they do, while delivering value to the customer on a regular and consistent basis.

“We exist in a world characterized by increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. The ways of working shaped by the Industrial Revolution, which still predominate in most organizations today, no longer allow us to respond quickly enough to the demands of our increasingly uncertain world. More and more organizations are struggling to survive, much less thrive, in such challenging times,” Lobos concludes.
