Business Agility

Business Agility is the customer-focused, holistic organizational embrace of Agile​ from individual teams and programs to the portfolio level, and across the entire enterprise. ​

Business agility extends Agile beyond IT to business functions like marketing, sales, operations; and most importantly to the ‘C’ suite​. Agile for finance, Agile for HR, Agile underwater basket weaving, you get the picture.

Business Agility is more than the methods spreading across departments. It enables​ ​an environment of growth, safety, trust and job satisfaction​ across the entire enterprise, resulting in ​drastically improved business outcomes​.   

Making a shift toward Business Agility enables the whole organization to become adaptable and responsive to change.  Whether or not business units use Agile methods themselves, the Agile organization is one where all components align around value streams to allow for rapid experimentation, continuous learning, and low risk, iterative creation.


Shift Left: Agile Business Units

1. Shift from occasional large projects to continuous delivery of value in small units.

2. Speed planning and adaptation with a tight feedback loop between business stakeholders and delivery teams.

3. Pivot on demand with faster, more flexible financial planning and budgeting processes.


Shift Up: Leadership & Scaling

1. Enhance flow by expanding agile teams to include upstream business stakeholders and downstream operations.

2. Speed decisions by empowering teams as small entrepreneurial units that own the full product lifecycle.

3. Improve adaptation by equipping teams with more direct access to stakeholders and users.


Shift Right: DevOps

1. Focus first on known bottlenecks in the delivery pipeline

2. Get meaningful operational data around usage patterns, revenue and defects through the latest deployments.

3. Use the data to learn and improve both what you build and how you build it.
