AgileSHIFT: Enterprise agility & transformation

AgileSHIFT: Enterprise agility & transformation


AgileSHIFT can be described as a way of working for the whole organization to embrace enterprise-wide agility. In doing so it prepares and supports organisations to find their competitive edge in the sectors they choose to operate in.

A consistent theme in many boardrooms is a desire to be ‘more agile’.

“Agile ways of working” as a concept continues to rise at pace across all industry sectors and is seen as a new working model than can be applied at a team level and enterprise wide.

There may be different opinions on what is organisational agility. Two common thoughts:

  • Flexibility in responding to customer needs, producing products early to market that match what customers are wanting
  • The organisation’s capability to evolve to meet the needs of a fast-changing market place.

Many of us are familiar with the application of agile practices at the project and product team levels, as supported by agile approaches such as Scrum, SAFe, Kanban, AgilePM and PRINCE2 Agile.   We are yet to see a framework aimed at supporting the whole organization at creating a culture of agility capable of adequately responding to transformation and rapid change.

AgileSHIFT, an Axelos guide, aims to help teams and the whole organization understand the value of agile ways of working and how to achieve organisational agility.  It is a light weight, tailorable framework that can be used by anyone. It is based on the premise that modern organisations will continue to experience transformational change. A KPMG global study in 2016 found that 96% of organisations are in some phase of transformation.

Enterprise agility has much to do with ensuring the organization is capable of quickly responding to change and able to support agile teams by integrating an agile mindset and agile ways of working across the entire organization.

Where agile approaches such as Scrum and Kanban predominantly focus at the product delivery level, AgileSHIFT is seen as the very first standard of its kind that outlines an approach to enhance agility organization wide.
