Strategic Speed: Post #7--Agility
Agility: Is not some predetermined process, rather it’s a sense of flexibility and adaptability necessary to go fast. I think of agile leaders like good quarterbacks who go to the line with a play but then call an audible at the line to adjust to the defense. The hallmarks of agility are the ability to explore new technologies and to create innovative products and services. I like this quote: “In short, agility must be built on the foundation of unity and clarity—especially clarity regarding the standards and values on which you won’t compromise” (p. 46).
