The agile workforce defined
On the eve of a new decade, agility has become the modern business leader’s desired state-of-being. Ardent Partners research has found that 81% of business leaders today are focused on achieving enterprise agility, which is defined as the ability to craft strong, swift responses to rapidly shifting internal requirements and market dynamics.
