DYNAMISM

This dimension refers to the extent to which the atmosphere is dynamic, lively and exciting. Dynamic environments are characterised by high levels of positive change.

Low Dynamism High Dynamism
Organizations which demonstrate low levels of dynamism are those which have few surprises in the ways in which things are done in the organization. There are rarely new projects or plans. These environments are not seen as exciting or lively, and can be characterised as things carrying on as 'usual'. Climates in organizations which have high levels of dynamism are characterised by new things happening frequently, including new ways of approaching issues or dealing with issues. Issues are often considered in different ways and new approaches to tasks are actively encouraged. These organizations are also characterised by high levels of energy and even turbulence. Individuals may describe these organizations as on 'full speed'.

Having looked at several practitioners of the Ekvall criteria, I have been delighted to work with Mark and the Dolphin Organization to evaluate BBI’s culture for change and creativity. Mark has combined excellent, pragmatic business realism, with the passion to drive 21st century business growth, and he communicates this in a way that has engaged every level of the business and been truly inspirational. If you are looking to the future for you and your business, you need to do this!
