Agile Transformation in the Workplace: What Every MBA Needs to Know
“Organizational Agility” is rapidly transforming the workplace and creating a vast number of new opportunities for MBAs. According to the 14th Annual State of Agile Report, 95% of employers are using Agile to deliver their work. As employers move from Agile to Agile at Scale to Organizational Agility, new organizational structures and job roles are needed to achieve the benefits. This trend is expected to continue to grow exponentially as a means of achieving competitive advantage and delivering the greatest value to customers in the shortest amount of time. To achieve their goals, employers need trained and certified professionals in these role.
