The concept of organizational agility – the ability to anticipate, adapt to, and react swiftly and decisively to change – has been part of the business lexicon for decades, but there’s nothing like a global health and economic crisis to force employers to face the agility imperative in today’s market. And among the various factors that influence organizational agility, data is key.
In fact, studies have shown that leading, agile organizations are more than three times as likely than their lagging counterparts to ensure their employees have access to relevant, insightful, accurate and timely data, allowing them to make the best decisions for the organization.
