Speed in the Digital Era: Enterprise Agile
In the Digital Era, consumer preferences and technology change at a rapid pace. Many organizations facing 'digital first' competitors are often slow to respond. They are repeatedly hampered by inflexible organizational structures and insufficient alignment between business and IT. Applying Agile at a program and enterprise level provides a solution: reintroducing speed, flexibility, customer focus and continuous improvement to the core of your organization. According to Gartner’s annual CIO survey1: in 2017 68% of organizations are scaling Agile to the enterprise level.
But doing so can be hard. Internal culture, legacy applications and insufficient Agile practice consistency can provide a serious challenge to organizations and their ability to transform their operations to an Agile way of working. To senior leadership the challenge to unleash the power and speed of their own enterprise can feel like a painful endeavour where true business impact remains elusive.
