We had a great time in our monthly event with Nick Hadjinicoaou. Nick is the Assistant Professor and Program Director for the Global Project Management Program at Torrens University Australia. Nick is a certified PMI Program and Project Management Professional (PgMP, PMP) an IMC Certified Management Consultant (CMC) and has completed an MBA and MPM from the University of Adelaide. In his presentation "Organisational agility & its perceived benefits from Australian perspectives", Nick talked about his research that aimed to explore and report relationships between 20 agile characteristics and 15 perceived benefits from the perspectives of Australian industry sectors. Descriptive and correlation statistics were employed to establish background of 36 research respondents and to indicate relationships of the studied variables. Degrees of correlation were closely examined. The research results showed that only some benefits of organisational agility were perceived and linked to the key characteristics of agility. The research also found different combinations of organisational agility that constructed individual perceived benefits. It was great to see how academic studies can analyse project management and its applicability!

The presentation slides are available from the website.

Topic:
Organisational agility helps businesses to sustain their competitive advantage and contributes to business success. It accelerates shared knowledge and learning processes that meet the pace of rapid environmental change. Despite the awareness of agile application, perceived benefits in relation to major characteristics of organisational agility have not been fully investigated.
This research aims to explore and report relationships between 20 agile characteristics and 15 perceived benefits from the perspectives of Australian industry sectors. Descriptive and correlation statistics were employed to establish background of 36 research respondents and to indicate relationships of the studied variables. Degrees of correlation were closely examined. The research results showed that only some benefits of organisational agility were perceived and linked to the key characteristics of agility. The research also found different combinations of organisational agility that constructed individual perceived benefits.
