Why Should Corporate Agility Matter to Me?
The current business landscape looks far different than it has in the past, it is constantly changing and businesses need to be able to keep up to stay competitive.
Just look at the past year, in almost every industry newcomers have entered the marketplace, affecting current or expected supply, a pandemic has forced companies to alter their way of working to ensure safety of their employees, and the oscillating economy has led to a change in revenue and challenged executives to make tough decisions to ensure final success for the company. While some of these disruptions are to be expected, others are unforeseen. As companies embrace the idea of corporate agility, they embrace the idea of being nimble and being responsive to change, which empowers companies to overcome obstacles and to identify new opportunities which will accelerate them to be industry leaders.
Agile innovation methods have revolutionized information technology
Over the past 25 to 30 years they have greatly increased success rates in software development, improved quality and speed to market, and boosted the motivation and productivity of IT teams.
Now agile methodologies—which involve new values, principles, practices, and benefits and are a radical alternative to command-and-control-style management—are spreading across a broad range of industries and functions and even into the C-suite.

When Agile should be considered
“[Ultimately], when the outcomes of Agile are appropriately married with a corporation’s desired operating model and characteristics within, Agile can be a powerful framework or toolkit that supports significant business value realization.”
“While there is no right or wrong approach, choose one that is most compatible with your teams and your corporation–culture, team size, corporation size, technical practices, organizational type, industry. Consider flexibility in your approach to implementing Agile.”

The future of Agile and how you can adapt alongside
“In the future, the workforce will evolve due, in part, to the preferences and values of today’s younger generation. Remember, however, these values will, at some point, also be subsumed by those of future generations. Agile, again, will enable corporations to adapt.”
