I have read a number of articles lately regarding the importance of “agility” in leaders and leadership style. Agility is the ability to respond quickly to environmental changes when necessary, instead of adhering to strict processes or procedures.

When an organization is agile, changes do not stress people or the system because everyone understands that this is a normal way of working.
Agile work cultures are flexible in almost every way.
