I think the ability to adapt to its environment is more important for an organization to succeed in our fast and constantly changing world due to advances in technology. When I retired from the HR military side of the house, I was unemployed for 6 months. I got my first HR civilian job, as a military HR specialist. There were multiple changes in the HR business practices within the short time of separating from the military. One specifically was the pilot program that was implementing a new hiring process for officers. For me to be valuable to my new job, I had to adapt and learn the new processes within the organization. Even the Army as a large organization, changed its efforts in trying to attract and maintain talented officers within its rank by creating a new hiring process.
According to Joerg Esser (2021), a partner at consulting firm Roland Berger, suggest the organizational leaders, should trust their employees to complete their job. They must also lesson their decision making during the workday; and that an increase in decision making by leaders throughout the day are signs that they are micro-managing their teams, which make them less efficient and less productive employees.
Mr. Jobs’ points made in 2005 at the Stanford Commencement Address are still valid today and can be applied to course material, workplace, and life in general on so many levels. The first point resonates with me in setting goals to complete my MBA. There were/are many times (late night studying / failing grades), I asked “why am I taking these courses?” In my line of work as a management analyst, I have been able to apply what I have learned or had the knowledge/answer to someone’s question…connecting the dots. Being able to improve my workplace or provide answers, validates my purpose at work.
