Over the last 20 years, Agile has become a popular project management approach to delivering work, often in less time and with better outcomes than traditional approaches. But now the world of work is changing so quickly—with organizations continuously having to adjust to shifting customer demands, emerging technologies, and every new competitive pressure. And even Agile and traditional approaches when combined can’t keep up with the rapid pace of change.
