Cloud breaks barriers to agility

Adam Burden is Accenture’s Chief Software Engineer and a senior managing director leading Technology services for Accenture in North America. In this episode, Burden shares how Cloud helps break barriers to agility. One barrier is legacy systems. While package solutions have become popular in the last few years, Burden says that the "renaissance of custom" today may make it more practical for businesses to customize their legacy systems. The result often is greater agility. "If I want to get more out of Agile, I have to change my culture. And Cloud is … the catalyst that helps to make that happen."

Defining agility in terms of risk

In his book "Agility: How to Navigate the Unknown and Seize Opportunity in a World of Disruption," Leo Tilman offers a comprehensive definition of the word "agility." According to Tilman and co-author former NORAD commander General Charles Jacoby, agility is "the organizational capacity to detect, assess and respond to environmental changes in ways that are purposeful, decisive and grounded in a will to win." In this episode we unpack the loaded definition and discuss how (tactical) agile practices and mindsets as we know them in the industry fundamentally address risk – and how agility can help address other types of risk in the world including global climate change, nationalism, and populism.
