A tactical definition

In a nutshell...

Business Agility is the ability of a company to adapt and deliver value to customers, as fast as change itself.

In a way it's a superpower. A coveted one. An elusive one. It entails:

  • (New?) capabilities,
  • (New?) behaviors, and
  • (New?) ways of working

A formal definition

"Business agility is a set of organizational capabilities, behaviors, and ways of working that affords your business the freedom, flexibility, and resilience to achieve its purpose. No matter what the future brings." – Business Agility Institute

Go deeper: read the latest "The Business Agility Report" (6th Ed. 2023), by the Business Agility Institute.

Be Aware of...
