Moreover, each change can be tested for a short period of time to determine its applicability or whether there is a need for further consideration.

Adopt the right practices 

To obtain business agility it is important for a company to adopt some modern practices such as Agile, DevOps, Lean and so on.

To be able to continually deliver high-quality value it is necessary that all units of the company work together. In fact, they have to collaborate to deliver great product faster than competitors.
