According to recent research, “67% of high-performing CEOs are actively embracing agility, and 100% of them state that their companies actively experiment with new products and services.”* To deliver what customers really want, improve your bottom line and see teams really engage, you need to go beyond sprints and standups to business-level agile.
As the speed of business grows and more competitors adopt agile, grassroots approaches just won’t cut it anymore. “Doing agile” doesn’t guarantee business value, and many companies now have the opportunity to connect their overall business strategy to the execution of the work. Are your agile practices improving or flatlining? Better yet, are they benefiting your bottom line?
