Developing Organizational Adaptability for Complex Environment
Boylan, Steven A.; Turner, Kenneth A.
Journal of Leadership Education, v16 n2 p183-198 Apr 2017
Developing organizations capable of adapting requires leaders to set conditions. Setting conditions normally requires purposeful activities by the leadership to foster and develop leader and individual adaptability, supported by processes and activities that enable adaptive behaviors through the totality of the organization (Goldstein, Hazy, & Lichtenstein, 2010). Developing adaptive organizations is challenging, requiring both art and process. In this paper, Boyland and Turner touch on both and provide a concept for developing military organizations capable of adapting to changing environments and setting the conditions for organizational adaptability
