History and Context
The Agile Future Forum (AFF) is a business-to-business initiative founded by 22 UK organisations. They reflect a broad range of sectors, sizes and geographical spread and all have a track record of managing workforce agility in the their organisation. Between them, they employ over half a million people across the UK and, as such, are a microcosm of UK plc.
The external business context has changed significantly since the 1980s. In terms of technology, changing customer demands, demography and globalisation, a number of shifting trends have created new challenges and opportunities for organisations. As the external context becomes increasingly complex, traditional models of work will come under strain. New, more agile models of work will be required as the need for agility becomes a key focus of the modern competitive company. All AFF founder organisations believe that being more agile has increased their ability to compete in a global market and is currently generating significant and tangible economic benefits for their businesses.
