Benefits of business agility management for business leaders

Business agility management offers several significant benefits for business leaders:

•Success: Business leaders achieve sustainable results (their business goals) despite accelerated change. Without managing agility business leaders cannot cope with such acceleration.

•Flexibility: Short operational sprints drive continuous adaptation and transformation.

•Accountability: Rather than leading business agility with a “program” it clarifies accountability of unit line managers.

•Focus: Agility initiatives focus on the vital few initiatives to be taken.

•Winning: Enterprises with higher agility win over slower adapting competitors.
