What Is Enterprise Business Agility?

Leaders are facing increased pressure to deliver faster, better products. The journey of true Enterprise Business Agility is one that requires an overall transformation strategy that combines lean portfolio management, organizational value stream design, lean product development, leadership and culture, measurement, DevOps and other elements.

The Enterprise Business Agility Model provides guidance for leading a successful enterprise business agility transformation based on seven key pillars.

The definition of business agility is “the ability to adapt and change, learn and pivot, deliver at speed, and thrive in a competitive market.”
– Sally Elatta & Evan Leybourn
