5 Top Tips: Being agile in the crowdfunding world, by Jess Ratty, Crowdfunder

Belinda’s top 5 tips for keeping your organisation agile:

Be an agile business leader:

“To be a successful business leader in today’s fast paced business landscape requires agility – agile is a method and mind set for navigating uncertainty, it will literally put the writing on the wall to give you the access you need to the workings of the people and processes within your business to ensure you are building the right thing, and building that thing right.”

Be agile with business direction:

“Agile helps teams to work out for themselves the best way forward by providing them with the tools, environment and support they need to build effective solutions. When crowdfunding – you’ll need to be agile with your project, by listening to your network and your “crowd” your business can grow with agility and new unforeseen business directions.”

Create an agile culture:

“Agile leaders take advantage of the wealth of talent they have within their organisation – empowering and energising their teams, helping the business play to it’s strengths. Agile gives leaders a way to let go without loosing control, giving teams ownership of their work.”

Communicating agile:

“Some of the best businesses are the ones with open lines of communication. Create collaborative channels within your business that share your vision and ambitions to bring a common purpose and with that, comes understanding, collaboration and enthusiasm for growth!”

Agile management:

“Many organisations find themselves starting lots of projects and not finishing them, you’ll want to balance running the business with creating slack for teams to enable them to continuously improve their working practices and gain even more traction and momentum towards your business goals. processes are great – but managing your team and a creating a culture of innovation and creativity is brilliant for unleashing new ideas, and working on that all-important team moral!”

We recommend the book “Being Agile in Business” for anyone looking to be the best in a high-growth environment.
