THE AGILE PERFORMER INDEX 2018
Agility drives success
In the first Agile Performer Index, goetzpartners and the NEOMA Business School demonstrate that agility and entrepreneurial success are clearly related. The survey among 285 leading European executives in 2017 documents that agile companies perform 2.7 times better financially.
Our second Agile Performer Index survey broadens its scope from European companies to organizations based in the North American (USA and Canada) and the Asia Pacific region, focussing on China. With these results, we will take the next step to a global agility benchmarking index providing insights on the state of agile practices in companies worldwide across different industries and company sizes.

Four Steps to Agility
1. IDENTIFY YOUR KEY PRESSURE POINTS
The first reference point for organizations that wish to improve their agility and therefore their performance, is a sober assessment of their own agile performance. With the help of a heatmap, which is based on the goetzpartners agility grid, companies are able to identify their individual key pressure points and can determine where their agile transformation journey need to start. The heatmap visualizes their strenghts and weknesses based on an inside-out assessment in conjugation with a benchmarking against approx. 300 companies.
2. Get inspired by leading practices
Thanks to the analysis of over 90 transformation programs of well-known companies and the extraction of over 80 single measures, goetzpartners provides you with inspiring practices on how to increase your degree of agility. All measures are structured according to the goetzpartners agility toolbox, combining the agility routines strategizing, perceiving, testing and implementing, with a clear link to five central design dimensions of a company organism:
- Purpose & Strategy
- Leadership & People
Coordination & Collaboration
3. SHAPE YOUR FITNESS PROGRAM
The focus of each agile transformation program is adjusted depending on the organization’s starting point and terms of reference.
Having analyzed and shaped many transformation programs, goetzpartners has derived four fundamental agility fitness programs. Each program engages with challenging questions and steers organizations through the process of improving their agility and thereby increasing their financial performance.
