Embedding strategic agility: a leadership agenda for accelerating business model renewal

Author: Doz, Yves L. ; Kosonen, MikkoINSEAD Area: StrategyIn: Long Range Planning, vol. 43, no. 2-3, April/June 2010 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 370-382.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: Strategic discontinuities and disruptions usually call for changes in business models. But, over time, efficient firms naturally evolve business models of increasing stability - and therefore rigidity. Resolving this contradiction can be made easier by developing three core meta-capabilities to make an organization more agile: strategic sensitivity, leadership unity and resource fluidity. This article reviews the underlying determinants of these capabilities, based on detailed research undertaken in a dozen companies who were reconceiving their business models - among others, Nokia, easyGroup, HP, SAP and Kone are used as examples. We propose a repertoire of concrete leadership actions enabling the meta-capabilities needed to accelerate the renewal and transformation of business models. To organize our argument we borrow the three main dimensions of the strategic agility framework presented in our earlier work, and develop corresponding vectors of leadership actions, each of which can enhance a firm’s ability to renew its business models
