Agility contrasts with strict plan execution, and yet it doesn’t lead to chaos. How come?

Instead of annual or even five-year plans, short-term goals are defined, milestones at short intervals. These short-term goals provide direction and security because today’s security also entails the ability to quickly abandon a wrong course of action. Short-range milestones provide opportunities to reevaluate, test, and receive feedback. Therefore, a revision always presents the potential to avoid an obstacle or prevent a collision. Your business gains flexibility through agility.
