History of Global Enterprise Agility Month

Although it has gained popularity in recent decades, the notion of enterprise agility is not new. The concept and definition may have evolved, but its spirit has not. History has provided us with some of the best instances of enterprise agility — individuals or companies who launched initiatives to solve agility issues or bring about positive agility change. The capacity of a corporation to modify its operations in response to a changing business environment is referred to as enterprise agility. Feedback from consumers and stakeholders, as well as changes in market trends, can help to enable these adjustments.

Business agility is defined as quick, continuous, and systematic evolutionary adaptation and entrepreneurial innovation aimed at acquiring and sustaining a competitive edge. Business agility may be maintained through sustaining and altering the goods and services supplied to suit client requests, reacting to changes in the marketplace, and taking advantage of available human resources. Agility in business refers to an organization’s capacity to quickly adjust to market and environmental changes in productive and cost-effective ways. The agile enterprise is an extension of this notion, referring to a company that leverages essential principles of complex adaptive systems and complexity science to achieve success. Organizational intelligence results in business agility.

The originator of the Global Enterprise Agility Month is unknown. However, the movement refers to a worldwide endeavor aimed at raising awareness about the measures that every firm must do to achieve sustained business success and give the greatest possible employee and customer experience. The business world is rapidly changing, and firms must adjust accordingly. Global Enterprise Agility Month focuses on the activities and dialogues that company leaders and organizations may have in order to survive and prosper in a changing environment.
