Enterprise Agility
The agile movement has made enormous strides in the last
decade, greatly improving software delivery and creating more
satisfactory work environments in many organizations. The
next horizon is extending agility from basic software delivery to
continuous delivery and into the business itself, utilizing the
advances in delivering software features early and often into
a transformation of businesses to deliver complete solutions 
early and often. The drivers for this, as we will see, come from a 
growing focus of CEOs on trying to survive and thrive in a world
of growing complexity, complication and fast moving competition.

However, achieving enterprise agility requires a different style
of management—an adaptive leadership style. This paper is
therefore divided into three main topics—describing the need for
enterprise agility; identifying what adaptive leaders need to be
doing (actions); and identifying what being (mindset)an adaptive
leader means
