Overall Business Agility
In addition to Agile HR, Agile Finance, and Agile Marketing, we will be offering an award for the organisation demonstrating overall excellence in business agility. As with our other award categories, we aren't looking just for the final result but to reward steps taken to build the connectivity and responsiveness needed for business agility.
Business Agility is a people-centred, organisation-wide capability that enables a business to deliver value to a world characterised by ever-increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. It is achieved by inspiring and harnessing the collaborative, creative ways of working of the people of the organisation in meeting its core purpose.
Our reviewers will be looking for examples of where an organisation’s culture, leadership, strategy, and governance contributes to the value delivered to all its stakeholders who operate in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environments, be they commercial, legal, technological, social, moral or political, enabling it to:
- Adapt quickly to market changes – internally and externally
- Deliver value rapidly and flexibly to meet customer needs
- Adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality
- Be continuously at a competitive advantage
Entries will be evaluated against the five elements of the Framework for Business Agility – the elements that can make an organisation truly agile:
leadership, strategy, governance, people and culture.

“These improvements would have taken at least 6 months to get approved and implemented previously. I’ve never got this done this quickly before” - Lucy Ginger Essex CC
“Blending them together (Agile and Lean Six Sigma) can give you greater benefit. The key differences are that we have been able to work at a more rapid pace. The predictability of what we can achieve in sprints have been greater. We have seen benefits such as our cycle time, more togetherness in our teams and more shared ownership. It adds to the toolkit we have the in the Lean Six Sigma experience. It works very well” - Wayne Fisher, SKY
