The importance of Business Agility:

Competitive disruption and the emergence of new business models threaten traditional market leaders. Organizations must innovate and deliver more effectively than smaller competitors while being willing to disrupt their own products and business models to survive and thrive into the future. The capability to deliver high-value features and products fast and responsively while continuously minimizing waiting, waste, and defects are delivering agility. By being agile, organizations can outlearn and outperform their competition. They can become learning organizations that improve continuously, their success fuelled by passionate, empowered employees.

Agile organizations are both dynamic and stable as they are reliable, resilient and efficient and at the same time nimble, fast and adaptive. Large global organizations have successfully embraced agility by redesigning themselves for both stability and speed.

Business agility comprises several critical organizational capabilities, some of which are Delivery Agility (Deliver Fast and Responsively), Product Innovation (Innovate and Disrupt), Organizational Adaptability (Adapt Organization and Culture) and Leadership Effectiveness (Lead through Complexity). Strengthening these capabilities prepares an organization to create and execute the vision, strategy, and goals.
