Agile – it’s such a simple word but one that can cause so much misunderstanding.
More and more of us are being asked to ‘be more agile’ in the way we work. We’re being called to be more adaptable, show greater agility, and to be more responsive. And it’s easy to see why, as most organizations are seeking to transform the way they operate in the face of a rapidly changing environment. Many sectors are having to respond to disruption, volatile markets, new technologies and uncertain futures.
But this call to be more agile has, in many cases, resulted in the inappropriate adoption of one or more Agile frameworks, and many teams, departments and individuals have been subject to practices and terminology that not only means little to them, but actually results in less efficient ways of working.

The AgileSHIFT principles are important because they create a reference point whenever something is in doubt and you need to make a decision on a specific course of action. They are essential guides for individual and organizational agility.
