Blog: SEARS- The Agile Organization From Another Era Files Bankruptcy

October 15, 2018

Last night Sears filed for Chapter XI bankruptcy. Started in 1886 by Richard Sears as R.W. Sears Watch Company, it transformed retailing. Sears developed an innovative distribution delivery system and mail order catalog that offered virtually any product, to anyone, anywhere in the United States. They accomplished this feat by leveraging the US Postal Service’s Rural Free Delivery program that connected the most remote parts of the US. Sears recognized the opportunity to re-imagine retailing as a national versus a local business. In many ways, they started out like the Amazon of its day and then followed with retail stores across the country to become the Walmart as well. Continue reading

Executive Receives ICAgile Talent Certification

 

Expanding the Agile Methodology to the entire organization

FAYETTEVILLE, NOVEMBER 1, 2018 – Cape Fear Partners executive, Darsweil L. Rogers receives certification in Agile Talent (ICP-TAL).  Mr. Rogers earned the certification for course development and instruction from the International Consortium of Agile. Agile Talent leverages the success of the Agile methodology in software development and project management and now applies it to the entire organization. 

“We operate at a unique point in world history where there is expected to be more technological change in the next 20 years than there was in the last 300 years.  This technological disruption, known as the 4th Industrial Revolution, aka Industry 4.0, includes advances in artificial intelligence, augmented reality, autonomous robots, the internet of things (IoT), 3-D printing and more.  All organizations will be experiencing disruption in the way they operate” says Rogers.  “This is a period of great opportunity for organizations to reimagine the path forward IF they embrace the opportunities that are available.  Conversely, those that fail to become more agile will find themselves falling behind.”

“Darsweil earning the Agile ICP-TAL certification is a further acknowledgement of the sort of work we have been doing for clients all along.  We help our clients to “think” differently and “see” new opportunities by applying new models and methods to achieve success”, say David Pistrui, Ph.D., Rogers’ Partner.  “When you combine the generational disruption due to Millennials and Generation Z dominating the workforce to the technological disruption from Industry 4.0 every organization should take a fresh look at how they achieve sustainable success. We are thought leaders in assisting clients in managing these disruptions,” says Pistrui.
