COOs and Rapid Business Adaptation


Published on

Value is based on Impact, impact is based on Production, and production now must be driven by relevance as affected by constant change. Adaptive Productivity is the basic performance requirement of operations.

COOs and Rapid Business Adaptation

  1. 1. Adaptive Productivity The Challenge for COOs
  2. 2. Performance management and the COO Performance is a measure of how much of an assumed potential is reached with a given deliberate effort. The effort produces the actual output measured against the assumed potential. Productivity, then, really is the key perspective for assessing the value of doing things a certain way. Circumstances constantly influence whether there is a reliable correlation between the current mode of production and the necessary level of performance. Awareness of circumstances influences how reliable the decision to change or stay is seen to be. Given today’s hyper-awareness, change is, with increasing frequency, seen to be necessary, and not changing is seen to be insufficient. For the purpose of managing performance, rapid adaptation is not just a “requirement”… it’s a competency. In production, people are an essential part of the adaptive productivity. The question is, how can and should people be supported in that responsibility for production?
  3. 3. CHALLENGE In current operating environments where value is measured in terms of performance-based gains, conventional reliance on exploiting stable arrangements of the environment is increasingly less helpful, since those arrangements are exactly what is most subject to change. Despite higher visibility of the diversity of environmental factors, volatility of emergent significant impacts is now the “new normal”, making current-state conditions highly transitory for everyone, thus future states less predictable except for shorter terms, and making adaptive productivity a critical success factor of sustained execution. Suddenly, it’s much like playing in a tournament without brackets, in games without scripts. But in a free-for-all, what do you still need to have, to “manage” your way to a winning “performance”? • Outcome incentives • Achievement threshholds • Incremental but cumulative progress • Conservation of opportunity • Modeled approach • Defined fundamentals Each of these issues is a performance variable; but anything that is used to meet a need must have an effect that aligns with how the other needs are met. The alignment is responsible for the productivity; the selections are responsible for the potential.

NEED RESPONSE RESOURCE DEMAND MATCHING SUPPLY The primary inhibitor of an “open” system for on-demand supply matching is the Department, which does not function today primarily as a resource developer and opportunity broker, but instead as an expense accounting center.

Archestra notebooks carry no prescriptive warranty. As ongoing research, all notebooks are subject to change at any time. ©2018 Malcolm Ryder / Archestra Research Archestra research is done from the perspective of strategy and architecture. With all subject matter and topics, the purpose of the notes is analytic, primarily to: * explore, expose and model why things are included, excluded, or can happen in given ways and/or to certain effects. * comment on, and navigate between, motives and potentials that predetermine Decisions about, and shapings of, the observed activity.
