What is agile (from consulting perspective)?

Anonymous A asked on Mar 16, 2019

We keep hearing about agile, how enterprises should become agile. Can someone plainly explain what consultants mean when they talk about agility. My attempts to learn about agile online were futile. i understand what it is broadly, but would have a difficult time explaining it to a 5 year old.

Honestly? It is basically the latest buzz word that consultants will pitch to earn the next project / contract

More serious answer: Agile here is the same concept as in IT, and self explanatory: we are trying to help the client take in new information faster and operate pivots faster, so they become more nimble. We are trying to get the client to behave like a cheetah instead of a rinoceros
