Agility: The Strategic Imperative to Survive and Thrive in Volatile Times
Although the strategic importance of agility is clear to many executives, what’s been less clear is the impact of agility on organizations top-line, bottom-line as well as on other holistic performance indicators. IDC Research shows that agile organizations outperform non-agile organizations across several indicators from profitability, to customers and talent, thus providing a solid ground for building the business case for agility in European enterprises. Organizations that want to accelerate their agility transformation need a compass, a roadmap that can guide them to progress incrementally in their journey along the key 5 dimensions of agility: leadership, structure, processes, portfolio, and technology architecture.
