Agility is an important quality characteristic of the management of a company. Those who are agile flexibly, productively and quickly grasp and visualize new opportunities, requirements and possible trends in the competitive environment. Nevertheless, he also assesses how necessary and important the resulting changes are. The goal is to act as profitably as possible for the company. It is a matter of constantly adapting to what is new, while retaining the necessary core of already existing knowledge about conditions and possible reactions.
Especially in the IT sector, an agile planning method is an important tool for mastering the requirements of a fast-moving, digitized world. In contrast to traditional planning, agile planning allows faster adaptation to new processes and does not stick to requirements that are rigidly defined down to the smallest detail. In addition, the close networking of the independently operating employees of an agile company leads to the rapid fulfillment of corporate goals.
This method for planning processes brings with it many opportunities. Among them is the final elimination of outdated patterns of thought and action. With the higher readiness for change it is possible to achieve a rethinking of all employees, which in turn leads to new, innovative ideas and actions. To take advantage of this opportunity, you need a plan that includes all areas of the company.
