Leaders who practice strategic agility are quick to adapt and show the ability to evolve, no matter the circumstances.
Given the new era of work and fluctuating economic progress, typical planning strategies that push companies toward surviving and defending themselves are no longer enough. Strategic planning promotes programmatic, analytical thinking that encourages leaders to stick to the status quo. Strategic agility on the other hand, is characterized by an entire organization regularly contributing its insights to renew and reinvent its value proposition. It’s one aspect of strategic leadership—which is a leader’s ability to express his or her organization’s vision and guide employees toward it.
