In the 1980s a profound shift occurred in U.S. military operations as Units began to be tested on their capacity to respond with speed, efficiency and effectiveness to a wide variety of threats, some of which had not been predicted. A hindering factor was a generic inability by American industry to support unpredicted military engagements and the U.S. Department of Defense funded studies that led to the development of a new business excellence model, the Agile Paradigm. The Agile Wheel, a method, developed in the late 1990s for helping companies to adopt the Agile Paradigm is explained and the findings of research undertaken by the Agile Manufacturing Research Group are presented. Recent research on the same topic is presented and a revised version of the Agile Wheel is presented.
