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. What's been less clear, however, is the quantitative impact of agility on organizations' top-line, bottom-line, and other holistic performance indicators.
IDC research shows that agile organizations outperform non-agile organizations across several indicators, from profitability to customers and talent — providing solid ground to build the business case for agility in European
enterprises. While 93% of agile organizations reported growing profits between 3Q19 and 2Q20, only 68% of static organizations reported the same.
