More value from less work.
An unstoppable business revolution is under way – and it is Agile. Companies that embrace Agile Management learn to connect everyone and everything…all the time. They can deliver instant, intimate, frictionless value on a large scale.
Agile began emerging many decades ago, but truly took off in the software development industry. Sparking dramatic improvements in quality, innovation, and speed-to-market, the Agile movement is now spreading quickly throughout all kinds of companies. It enables a team, a unit, or an enterprise to nimbly adapt and upgrade products and services to meet rapidly changing technology and customer needs. And the process is applicable anywhere-companies don’t need to be born Agile, like Spotify. Even centuries-old Barclays is making the transition and reaping rewards.
Filled with examples from every sector, The Age of Agile helps readers:
- Master the three laws of Agile Management (team, customer, network)
- Embrace the new mindset
- Overcome constraints
- Employ meaningful metrics
- Make the entire organization Agile
- And more
With this breakthrough approach, even global giants can learn to act entrepreneurially. Their future depends on it.
