What is business agility?

Business agility is aligning the pace of your business with the pace of the market. Customer expectations, competitive shifts and regulatory changes are disrupting global markets—and the way you do business.

To survive the disruptive outside forces lurking around practically every corner, you have to stay on top of your game and a step ahead of competitors. Learn how to enable your organization to sense and respond to all types of changes –internal and external, without disrupting vision, work or your processes.

Agile involves changes in deep-seated attitudes, values and the entrenched habits of hierarchical bureaucracy that will not change merely by taking a short training course."

Steve Denning, Forbes



How to achieve business agility

Creating business agility means consciously re-architecting your entire business operating system into one that’s designed for speed, steering and opportunity. To harness the full power of agile, organizations must transform the way people work, and effectively learn how to align people, processes, data, and technology.

People

In an agile organization, the people remain constant while the scope of work changes. This establishes continuity and significantly increases project predictability. Stable teams allow an organization to properly plan and predict work. Empowered, collaborative and stable teams are able to deliver high-value products to customers faster, and achieve truly transformative results.

Processes

An agile framework can help inform an organization on how to operate cross-functionally, outside of pre-defined work groups. It promotes collaboration across multiple disciplines and focuses on the work and value to be delivered. The right process and framework can dismantle silos, drive people, and enable alignment; thereby creating increased agility that connects strategy to execution.

Data

True agility requires agile data discipline: a structured, centralized and scalable approach to collecting, managing and sharing data across an entire portfolio. Transformative organizations use data to align more than just dev team work, data also drives key initiatives, product decisions and business steering rationale. And it is what makes scaling and  transforming with agile possible.

Technology

A strong software solution enables and supports the other pillars of business agility—the people, the data and the processes. The solution must facilitate an initiative from concept to delivery, structuring each step in the process over its entire lifetime. Enterprise-class agile software allows for workflow management, from ideation and planning to outcomes and execution.
