Ten Ways to Get More Agile
Agility is a buzzword for business and IT, but how do you make it real? Being adaptive requires innovation, but creativity must be matched with the ability to forecast industry trends and changes in ways that actually pay off. In the book, Plan B: How to Hatch a Second Plan That’s Always Better than Your First (Free Press/Available Now), author David Kord Murray breaks down agile management and execution into critical action steps. One key lies in recognizing and resolving problems before they render your organization obsolete. It’s also critical to constantly evaluate the problems you’re tackling to make sure they’re still relevant to business strategies. Timing is everything – product life cycles once measured in terms of decades now will last just a few years, or even months. Murray is a former aerospace scientist who also once served as head of innovation for Intuit. For more about the book, click here.
