The Agility Gap

Some quick notes on “The Strategic Agility Gap” by David Woods1 Summary The growth of new technologies and new levels of has led to new organisational capabilities. With these new capabilities has come greater levels of complexity and inter-dependence, which in turn lead to unpredicted and unpredictable areas of brittleness / lack of resilience. Combine these factors with an increasingly complex world and there can be unpredicted failures and outages. Examples include the impact of ransomware such as Wannacry.
