The Key to a Successful Business Agility Transformation?
Embrace Agile at the Leadership Level

Leadership support of the Agile Mindset is the most impactful determinant of whether or not an organization will succeed in their Business Agility Transformation. If you want to rise above the competition, then you as a leader must speak the language of the teams you want to empower.

After a decade of Scaled Agile consulting, ICON knows what leadership culture should look like at the executive level. It begins with a vision for the organization that includes—and goes beyond—a focus on strategic business outcomes. To help clients embrace company-wide agility with the right kind of leadership support, we've adopted the measurement-based Enterprise Business AgilitySM (EBA) Model by AgilityHealth®.
