Business Agility refers to those well adapted enterprises which can respond quickly to market changes, internally and externally, without losing momentum or vision

When an organization sets out on the Agile transformation journey the final destination can be business agility. Why is it so important to become an agile organization? Business agility is the ability of a company to adapt to and be ready for change. It refers to how capable is the company of reacting to the everchanging market trends, customers’ demands. And most importantly, if the company is skillful enough to act quicker than the competitors to drive change productively and cost-effectively.



How to achieve Organizational Agility?

To become a truly Agile organization, Agile culture needs to be penetrated throughout the whole company. This means that it moves beyond software development teams and impacts all departments within the organization, such as Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance, Legal, HR. The entire organization has to become agile and adaptive. Moreover, the new mindset must stretch outside to transform collaboration with clients and turn it into partnership that requires efforts from both parties and results in customers satisfaction.
