Agility has become a popular buzzword over the last 10 to 15 years, but it's not a new concept. For an organization to have agility, it must have leaders who are agile and innovative change agents. The days of the old curmudgeon CEO saying, “we never would have done it that way in my day” are over. Agile is the way of the future, and it is here to stay. Studies have repeatedly shown that "learning agility," the ability to learn from new experiences, is what differentiates successful executives from unsuccessful ones. Measuring learning agility will help to identify successful leaders.
