The term Agile refers to a set of methodologies originally used in the software development industry. Given their success, they have since then been applied to other contexts characterized by uncertainty and volatility, such as those we currently live in, where the solutions of the past do not necessarily apply to the present moment.
They are particularly suitable for the development of new products and the design of processes.
It is based on four values:
Focus on the team and interactions between people
Incremental value generation
Close and constant collaboration with the customer
Reactivity to change
Agile, once transformed into a culture, allows organizations that operate in highly complex and unstable environments to be much faster in responding to the needs of their clients, which are constantly changing.
