Volatile, Uncertain, Chaotic, Ambiguous – in a VUCA environment, companies need a strategizing process that itself is agile. Agile Strategizing is such a process helping companies to change strategy as often, as radical, as interactive as necessary.
Agile and Agility as buzzwords have been around for a while. The idea of agile strategy though has only recently entered the world of business consulting and management.

‘Agile strategizing’ refers to the process to proactively adapting strategy content to the environment and/or create a new environment.
