For individuals:

It means maintaining a high degree of career agility to ensure that personal career planning stays highly flexible and elastic, in order to align with the pace, needs, and changes of the modern business environment.

For enterprises:

It means cultivating your employees’ agile thinking when it comes to career planning.

An agile career is a self-reflective, incremental career path, guided by response to change, evolving job roles, and designed to optimize creativity, growth, and happiness.
