The Mindset to Achieve Agility

The agile mindset focuses on “being agile” as a foundation for success in “doing agile.” It is defined by the four values and described by the twelve principles of the Agile Manifesto, and then manifested through an unlimited number of practices and different ways of working.

The Benefits of an Agile Mindset

The customer today is in a constant state of motion. To achieve customer-centricity, the agile mindset acknowledges the need for learning and experimentation that enables people and the organizations they form to be more flexible in how they meet a customer’s needs.

When people develop an agile mindset, they embrace challenges and view failure as a learning opportunity. They can truly surprise, delight, and fulfill the needs of their customers by co-creating, experimenting, adapting, innovating and being okay with failure along the way.

Leaders and practitioners in any field can develop agility and be prepared for the future of business, creative work, and customer-centricity. Marketers, HR managers, finance leaders, product designers, content creators, sales representatives—any discipline can benefit from this mindset and way of working.
