In this VUCA world where change is the only constant, Business Agility has become a buzzword across the organizations.
In my talk, I’ll try to put across different types of Scaling methodology and will try to bring some consensus if Business Agility can be one of the forms of the Scaling Agility or it's a different game altogether.
We have started our Agile journey from team, then took it to the multiple teams. From there we have taken the same to multiple distributed teams. Moving forward we aligned the Agile methodology to different departments. The time is to connecting the islands of agility across the organization to achieve the high performance, lean business, make the business ideals of pro-activity and dynamism.
But to do that have we just linearly scaled the Agility to the organizational level to the entire business level? Or it’s a non-linear scaling of Agility? Have we horizontally scaled the it or it’s just a vertical scaling?
Is it not at all a scaled version of team level agility, rather something else? Let’s explore.

Change is the only constant in the world. That's an universal truth. But today businesses are facing tremendous competition and disruption in terms of both business and technology. The need of the hour for them to survive is to constant adaption and innovation. As per the PMI President and CEO Mark Langley, "the most important factor influencing project success rates is an organization's agility level. ...greater the agility, the better the outcomes: financial results, customer satisfaction, project metrics, strategy implementation, and benefit realization".
Agility X.0 – a thought to lookback the progression and the would be state that can happen in coming days, where we are heading to. We started the journey from a product development concept and borrowing the name from a game called Rugby, created multiple frameworks and then a Methodology to bring all of them under a single umbrella.
Industry has progressed to Industry 4.0, Management has progressed to Management 3.0, but where does Agile is? Is it Agile 1.0 or Agile 2.0 or somewhere else?
If we think about team level Agile – we may call that Agile 1.0, then the major second wave was Scaling Agile – we may mark that Agile 2.0 and then the current wave of Business or Enterprise Agility can be considered as Agile 3.0. or are we missing something?
As an Agile process to adapt to the business demand, in the evolution we added the newer concepts like, Kanban Lean startup, Lean change management, etc. bring the best practices from other industries to bring greater perspective to the Agility to the entire Business.
In my talk I’ll try to highlight most of the major changes or shifts in Agile happened in last about 20 years and will try to bring a different perspective on the progression happened. In the current scenario sometime it might be confusing with so many branches or variations – Business Agility, Enterprise Agility, Emotional Agility, Leadership Agility, HR Agility or Agile HR, etc. etc. – which one is more relevant than other or one is complementing to another. I’ll try to find out if there is any pattern exists on the evolution of the practice or process.
In my talk, I'll take you thru how the most of the key drivers of agile leadership are influencing the progression towards the newer forms or shapes of the Agility keeping the actual DNA of Agility as is. e.g. how the Agile Leaders are creating the sense of urgency to adapt with changing environment and then creating engagement across the organization. Providing Direction to align People and other resources and bringing the culture of Innovation across the Organization.
