What is corporate agility?
The current business landscape looks far different than it has. Just look at the past year—nearly every sector, community, business and organization has been disrupted by newcomers, a pandemic has imposed new ways of working, and the oscillating economy has forced challenged executives to make some tough decisions. While some of these disruptions are to be expected, most are unforeseen.
The idea of corporate agility—being nimble and responsive to change—ensures companies’ abilities to overcome these obstacles, identify new opportunities, and accelerate them to the top of their industry.
Agile innovation methods have revolutionized information technology
Over the past 30 years, they have increased success rates in software development, improved quality and speed to market, and boosted motivation and productivity within IT teams.
Now, Agile methodologies—with new values, principles, practices, and benefits—a radical alternative to command-and-control-style management, are spreading across a broad range of industries and functions, even into the C-suite.

Expert Insights into Organizational Agility
Established organizations often become stagnant, despite the increase in the number of rapid and dynamic market competitors. To embrace the idea of Corporate Agility, companies should shift their mindsets to be more adaptive, ambiguous and resilient. By shifting the mindset, companies can create a corporate foundation where agile can thrive, and so too can business.
Armed with Corporate Agility, you will understand…
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.”
How to create an approach for you
“While there is no right or wrong approach, choose one most compatible with your teams and corporation–culture, team size, technical practices, organizational type, industry. Consider flexibility in your approach to implementing Agile.”
The Future of Agile
“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 also be subsumed by those of future generations. Agile, again, will enable corporations to adapt.”
