White paper: Agility: The strategic imperative to survive and thrive in volatile times
The strategic importance of agility is clear to many executives, with IDC's Agility Benchmark Survey 2020 showing that 90% of CEOs consider it very or extremely important for their success.

IDC research shows that agile organisations outperform non-agile organisations across several indicators, from profitability to customers and talent – providing solid ground to build the business case for agility in European enterprises.
Market conditions and rapid innovation cycles in disruptive players are changing the rules of the game – an evolutionary game in which the fittest will not only survive, but also outperform their competitors.
