World-Class EA: The Agile Enterprise

 

 

The concept of “agile” has recently come to the fore, typically in connection with technical activities, such as software development. Subsequently, the agile approach has been extended and applied to, for example, solution architecture activities.

 

However, we suggest that agile is in fact a way of working, a mindset. It applies to more than just software development, or architecture, or any other one area of activity.

 

The real benefit comes from applying an end-to-end agile delivery approach throughout the enterprise.
