Learning Agility and agile working: a match made in heaven
An agile culture, agile mindset and learning agile people. The term Agility is increasingly front and centre in the strategy of organisations. In addition, more and more companies plan their work according to the agile methodology, not just in the IT department but throughout the organisation. Google Agile HR or Agile Marketing, and you’ll be inundated with articles and training programmes.
In this article, we look at whether it is critical for people working within the agile workstyle to be learning agile. Is Learning Agility related to agile working or is it a totally separate concept?

Can you develop Learning Agility?
Yes you can! Learning Agility is measured by a combination of what you can do and what you want to do, optionally combined with your current behaviour in practice (what you are currently doing). This combined measurement provides a complete and nuanced picture. By only basing a Learning Agility measurement on personality/potential, motivations or current behaviour, you do people an injustice. If you merely look at people’s basic skills, you miss what people want. And a measurement based solely on current behaviour to predict effective behaviour in an unknown future is too limited and narrow.
