Business Agility Is The Ability To Respond Quickly

We define business agility as the ability to respond quickly and efficiently to changes in the business environment and to leverage those changes for competitive advantage.

— Jason Bloomberg, The Agile Architecture Revolution: How Cloud Computing, REST-Based SOA, and Mobile Computing Are Changing Enterprise IT [1]

So what are the tools we need in order to use market changes to create competitive advantage for our organizations?


Business Agility is the key to survival and growth in this age of disruption. We need to start asking for systems that accept changes in the business environment and enable fast flow of value delivery. Business Agility requires us to organize in a team-first approach around the product and desired architecture, and also to invest in long-term management and improvement of our Value Streams.

Business Agility requires us to unlearn Agility as we knew it, and step into a future that will require more of us—and also offer us a new world of reward.
