Discovering unFIX: moving towards more flexible organizations

BeTomorrow is a partner of unFIX

In a constantly changing world, adaptability and responsiveness are more crucial than ever. Equipped companies are constantly looking for ways to improve their efficiency and meet their customers' needs by innovating in their organization and working practices.

It's in this context that unFIX is emerging, like a rising star. The unFIX model promises a revolutionary approach, offering a system designed to meet the unique challenges of large-scale organization.

This article explores in detail what unFIX is, how it differs from traditional frameworks, and the key reasons why it could be the solution to revitalizing your structure and mobilizing your people.

What is the unFIX model?

unFIX is the revolution in organizational models. unFIX is not just another framework in the already saturated landscape of organizational models. Not a framework in the traditional sense, unFIX is more like a library of adaptive patterns, designed to offer unrivalled flexibility and adaptability across diverse sectors, not just IT. Unlike rigid methodologies and frameworks, unFIX encourages a flexible organizational structure, enabling teams to adapt quickly to change and new opportunities.

This model deliberately moves away from rigid processes to embrace a philosophy where team autonomy, accountability and proximity to the customer experience are central. With teams (or "Crews") dedicated to specific objectives and value chains, unFIX encourages a fluid and dynamic structure, capable of adapting quickly to changes and market needs.

unFIX: the anti-framework for agility at scale?

The foundations of unFIX

Calling unFIX "the anti-framework of agility at scale" is not a play on words; it's an accurate description of its essence, mainly because it rejects the idea that agility can be locked into a fixed set of rules or procedures. unFIX doesn't impose a strict set of processes. Instead, unFIX proposes an approach based on reusable patterns that can be adapted to the specific needs of each organization or team, favoring an approach based on team autonomy and shared responsibility.

Far from the constraints of traditional frameworks and methods such as SAFe, LeSS or Holacracy, unFIX promotes a networked organizational structure, where "Crews" enjoy great freedom to determine their working methods, fostering an agile and responsive corporate culture, supported by "Forums" for cross-functional coordination and "Bases" acting as autonomous mini-companies. This decentralized approach is a breath of fresh air for organizations seeking to adapt quickly to change with agility.

8 Key Reasons to Adopt the unFIX Model

Adopting unFIX within your organization or team has the potential to radically transform how you work and collaborate. Here are eight key reasons why unFIX deserves your attention:

Reason 1: Exceptional Flexibility and Adaptability

unFIX revolutionizes how organizations respond to change by combining a flexible structure with the capacity for customization and continuous evolution.

Crew members play a crucial role in decision-making, enhancing their sense of belonging and commitment to team goals.

This platform also provides a conducive space for continuous learning, allowing each member to enhance their skills and actively contribute to the team's success. The model promotes a culture where every member is invested in collective success, strengthening engagement and motivation.
