Rapid Enterprise Design
Hans Mulder suggests you look at Rapid Enterprise Design for Organizations to increase Agility. Existing methods for redesigning organizations are often not capable of meeting the required rate of change. This applies in particular to development methods for IT applications: the average IT-project takes around two years to develop and implement. Therefore, there is an urgent need for methods that make it possible to redesign and restructure organizations, preferably in an integral manner, within a few months. This demands a fundamentally different (scientifically grounded) method that can precisely specify the necessary interaction between the organization, communication, and information (systems). This idea formed the impulse for the scientific quest to test the Design & Engineering Methodology for Organizations (DEMO) method in Rapid Enterprise Design. The conclusion of the research, see TUDelft DEMO, is in short that DEMO, supplemented by a project management approach, is an excellent method for the rapid (re)design of both small and large organizations.
