Taking measures

how to assess your organization's agility transformation program

Organizations are spending significant amounts of time and money trying to improve their agility. But if project practitioners don't properly measure the results of these transformation programs, they'll never know whether or not they succeeded. Agility is the ability of an organization to sense change in its environment and respond quickly and appropriately, according to PMI's Pulse of the Profession®: Capturing the Value of Project Management Through Organizational Agility. Because changes around us never stop, project managers have to closely monitor organizational agility programs. The measurement process can be broken down into three phases -- before the agility transformation program, during it and after. A number of quantitative and qualitative measurements can be used, in addition to the ones specific to your industry.
