Assess your organisation to frame the interventions needed for transformation, in your own context.
This self assessment tool will take you through a breakdown of the Six Enablers of Business Agility to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your organisation, so you can reflect on where energy can be focussed on enabling business agility.
What are The 6 Enablers of Business Agility?
Leadership & Management
Are your leadership and management driving the change by evolving their own behaviours, views and mindset?
The number-one impediment to greater agility (State of Agile Report). Is your organisational culture aligned with agile values and principles?
Is your team structured for agility, able to collaborate and adapt to change quickly based on feedback or the ever-changing business landscape?
People & Engagement
Engagement is a leading indicator of success. Are the people within your organisation sufficiently engaged to create a high-performing team?
Governance & Funding
Does your organisation invest in an incremental funding model to allow for innovation and experimentation?
Ways of Working
Has your team adopted the right processes, practices, tools, and techniques, and do they work holistically alongside the other enablers?

The 6 Enablers of Business Agility: How to Thrive in an Uncertain World by Karim Harbott
Installing agile tools and practices won’t be enough to respond to rapid market change unless you lay the groundwork with six key enabling factors.
An ever-growing pile of frameworks and tools falsely offer an easy route to organizational agility. However, responding to rapid market change requires you alter so much more than just your way of working. Your work style is only one of six factors that Agile Centre’s research identifies as the key to success. From years of experience certifying people in agile leadership, product ownership, and scrum mastery, Karim Harbott has created a model that will help your organization achieve all six factors required for success: leadership, culture, structure, engagement, and governance as well as ways of working together. Drawing from Harbott’s famous Business Agility Canvas, this book will help leaders get realistic about the scope of the changes needed in their organization and show them how to get started.
