"Traditional organisations have become great at going slow and saying ‘no’. But the world has moved on. Disruptors move fast and enjoy the innovation that comes with business agility. They realise the power of saying ‘yes, and’, and have liberated their workforces to be able to live that.” – Andrew Hobday

The Story thus far...
It's been a number of years since agile software development entered the arena and began building its followership. It's successfully allowed development to move from a plan-based approach to a change-based methodology. A huge strength of agile is how well it handles change. So it figures that more recently, the fundamentals of agile have been applied to different contexts. Business agility (also known as organisational agility) takes the elements of agile software development and applies them more broadly across an entire organisation. It's an exciting prospect in a time where change is rapid, relentless, and sometimes even irreverent.
