What is agility & why it matters
“Agility is about being able to quickly change
things like processes, structure, products and
services to generate a positive business outcome...
When done properly it can drive
outstanding results. The critical part is that it
must be done with genuinely desirable customer
benefits in mind. It sounds very simple and
intuitive but in my experience many companies
don’t think like that.”
