Nimble is a relatively new buzzword consultants are launching into mainstream Business English.  An all-encompassing term meaning to be quick, flexible and able to adapt to change, it is most often used in referencing your position in the marketplace relative to competition. For example, a consultant might give the advice, “You need to develop products that are nimble; so you can quickly react if the competition introduces a similar offering.”
