This paper examines facilitating business agility. Business agility is the set of principles, practices, and values that allow the enterprise to respond quickly to threats and capitalize quickly on opportunities. Like all business outputs, business agility is dependent upon processes, people, and technology. But, surprisingly, business agility is more reliant on great leadership than standard models of operation. This may seem like a paradox because the ‘quickly’ part of business agility is talent led. Let us assure you, it is no paradox. The difference between the businesses that respond to disruption with energized action and the businesses that respond to disruption with paralyzed disorganization lies with the capabilities of key leaders. Business agility may be talent dependent, but it is leadership enabled.
