In many corporate boardrooms, the word Agile conjures up images of small teams of hotshot software developers, iterating over their backlogs of requirements so rapidly they don’t have time to sit down during their daily status meetings.
At ICAgile’s inaugural Business Agility 2017 conference in New York last week, however, it was clear that Agile had jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them.
Business Agility, with Emphasis on Business
Agile – spelled with a capital A – refers to a core philosophy and set of principles for developing better software. While Agile principles date back decades, the publication of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 marks the founding of Agile as a distinct movement.
During the intervening 16 years, the connection between building better software and business agility, however, has been a tenuous one at best. But now that Agile is maturing and digital transformation is driving change across enterprises large and small, companies are realizing that their best bet for achieving business agility is to take the best of Agile and apply it across the entire organization.
Intellyx publishes the Agile Digital Transformation Roadmap poster, advises companies on their digital transformation initiatives, and helps vendors communicate their agility stories. As of the time of writing, none of the organizations mentioned in this article are Intellyx customers. ICAgile covered Jason Bloomberg’s travel expenses to Business Agility 2017, a standard industry practice. Image credit: Jason Bloomberg.
