JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – Nothing is for certain.
That, according to an expert, is the only certainty with technological disruption around just about every corner, an economy in flux and customer behaviour changing rapidly.
Biase De Gregori, Head of Agility at IQbusiness, said Agile, then, a set of principles and practices designed to drive business agility and to adapt to changing market conditions, was a powerful tool for any organisation that could implement it successfully.
“Unfortunately, many organisations that have adopted Agile are challenged with changing the culture and mindset that is required to adopt this approach,” he said.
He was discussing the findings of the 2017 Agile Report.
Findings indicate 72 percent of organisations adopt Agile in the hopes of accelerating speed-to-market, 21 percent of respondents saw no improvement in their organisations.
“What Agile does do is improve an organisation’s ability to make better decisions and to drive the most value for stakeholders; that is speed in a sense, but it isn’t intended to accelerate product delivery,” De Gregori explained.
IQbusiness is the leading independent management consulting firm in South Africa, helping clients overcome their business challenges and achieve better results.
The inaugural IQbusiness Agile Survey 2017 seeks to assess the maturity of agile adoption in South Africa.
