Adaptability is essentially a cultural element and reflects typical thinking patterns and ways of working.
The main enemy is therefore itself a cultural one. Embedded behaviours in managers and staff, underpinned by procedures and systems which emphasise the day job and getting work done/targets achieved over development projects, networking with customers/end users and making time to be creative and challenge paradigms, individually and as a team.
L&D often focuses on sheep dip solutions and menus (look at the BBC's response to the Brand/Ross joke debacle - did everyone need to go on an ethics course at great expense to the taxpayer?). How much of the L&D budget is targeted at outward looking change and adaptability - e.g. empathy with customers and innovation vs internal issues like appraisal, teambuilding, IT etc.?
