Flexible Organization

A Flexible Organization is one that is able to adapt and respond relatively quickly to changes in its external environment in order to gain advantage and sustain its competitive position. A suitable organizational structure is key to the "flexibility" of a business. A flexible organization is more likely to have adopted what is often referred to as an "organic" structure, as compared with a "mechanistic" structure. The concept of a flexible organization is all about the ability of a business to adapt to changes in its external environment, to be responsive to opportunities and threats, and to be agile in its decision-making.[1]
