Rapid Responsive Delivery

Market winning businesses produce high quality products and services, release them to market quickly, and continuously adapt solutions based on feedback and market reaction. To delight customers and satisfy market demand, effective delivery depends on lean execution, immediate response to feedback, and near-zero-defect quality.

To support innovation or any higher business agility capability, enterprises must demonstrate the ability to deliver high-quality products rapidly and continuously — a capability we call Delivery Agility.
