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.
