Scaled agility can be defined as a large organization’s ability to adapt, innovate and change at speed. Through the COVID-19 period we saw many institutions combine their existing strengths of scale (brand, franchise, investment resources) with a new-found ability to change and innovate at speed when there was no alternative. The opportunity now is to retain this scaled agility and build it into the DNA of the organization, harnessing this capability not just in a crisis but in how they differentiate their support for clients every day.
In today’s competitive and rapidly evolving business environment, scaled agility is key for large organizations. Those that adapt and innovate at speed will be best placed to succeed
