Seven Principles of an Agile Enterprise

  • Seven Principles of an Agile Enterprise-

    Agile enterprises prioritize their systems by pace layers, or the speed at which they need to adapt. They don’t let systems of record (like ERP or CRM) get in the way of differentiating and innovating applications. While systems of record are vital to everyday business processes, they require substantially more resources to change. Agile enterprises take advantage of rapid application delivery frameworks to build new innovative applications on top of their systems of record.

Even the most experienced agile IT teams have a hard time keeping up with the rising demand for new business applications. When it comes to supporting these teams, Jeff Sutherland – co-creator of the widely adopted Scrum development methodology – says “it’s all about adaptability.”

The problem is simple: Yesterday’s enterprise technology is too rigid to support today’s demands for new and improved business applications. In fact, the fastest-moving enterprises around the world all have one thing in common: They don’t let today’s investments in technology slow down tomorrow’s innovations. These enterprises practice agile methodologies outside of their development rooms and IT organizations – they adopt agile as a philosophical imperative, enterprise-wide.

This slideshow features the seven principles, identified by Mendix, that allow the world’s elite organizations to maintain market leadership in highly competitive industries by embracing adaptability as a key growth enabler.
