ORGANIZATIONAL AGILITY LEVEL EVALUATION MODEL AND EMPIRICAL ASSESSMENT IN HIGH-GROWTH COMPANIES

Mindaugas Deksnys, Prof. Dr. Rima Žitkienė

ABSTRACT

In an ever-changing and increasingly competitive global environment organizations need to adapt faster to survive. In order to face market uncertainties, organizations must become agile. Organizational agility is a complex and multidimensional concept. One of the main challenges in researching organizational agility is its measurement. The variety and combination of attributes, characteristics, capabilities, and practices make the measurement of organizational agility level highly complicated and subjective. The purpose of this article is to explore the organizational agility level measurement methods and present a possible evaluation model. In the article, authors propose organizational agility evaluation and assessment methodology. The presented model is empirically tested in the context of high-growth companies in Lithuania. These companies’ agility level is evaluated using fuzzy numbers logic which allows more precise agility level evaluation in the organization. This article contributes to research by providing a more unified concept, which can be adapted in studying organizational agility in a wide and global range of organizations, regardless of the industry they operate in.
