Brief Overview – the notion is that for organisations to be adaptable they will need to hire 'adaptable people' from diverse backgrounds, to work with their customers and clients. The traits of adaptability sought will be the same whichever organisation you work for. Organisations waste resources chasing and competing for talent. So why not form alliances and collaborate instead?
Example - organisations could partner with, jointly develop and execute recruitment programmes with their customers and clients to identify those people.
Those individuals who are successful would have a series of short assignments with customers or clients to familiarise themselves with the workings of their business before they join the organisation to support and work with them.
The approach could be extended further in a couple of ways:
Example - organisations could work with their partners or even organisations from completely different sectors, not customers or clients, as the core traits of adaptability will be the same.
Example - an even more radical extension could see individuals choose who they would like to work for on a longer term basis after building up a portfolio of assignments with different organisations represented at the recruitment stage.
