Human Agility (Individual Agility) - Response-ability
tan liong choon, Management Consultant, Singapore

The systematic classification by 12manage of agility into strategic, portfolio, organisational & operational is rather good.
My view is that cutting across all levels is the human aspect of agility competency. I would think the following concepts found in Stephen Covey's 7 habits of highly effective people are very appropriate in this topic.
As a human being, people have a choice of how they respond to any experience. Covey calls this "response-ability". To be proactive and initiate response (as opposed to waiting for things to happen), requires 4 cognitive capabilities:
1. Self-awareness - the ability to know oneself and his involvement in any given situation
2. Imagination/vision - the ability to create/visualise the scenario beyond the current reality
3. Conscience - a deep sense of right and wrong
4. Independent will power - the ability to act based on the awareness of oneself.
Note that to be effective, the above capabilities need to be considered for events/conditions that one can control ("circle of influence") versus those we can't control.
