The Agile Organization: Four Ways Agility Improves Performance
Throughout our lives, our collective experiences teach us ways of doing things that work, or at least work well enough. In fact, our DNA encourages us to develop habits and resist change. That makes it difficult to effectively respond to change and even harder to initiate the change that is often needed for long-term success. Developing agility is a technique for overcoming these biases to seek out new ways of operating and to identify and act on opportunities for growth. TRACOM defines Agility as “the capacity to recognize, create and exploit opportunities in a changing environment.” Companies who invest in agility training acquire significant advantages over their competitors.
