No, Self-Organisation or "Agility" is not an end in itself. It´s an end to a means - in my view.

But yes: Self-Organisation is something many organisations need and will need to adapt to the challanges of their environment.

And: Self-Organisation has a precondition: If people don´t work in themselves as persons and on their culture, self-organisation can backfire. 

We call this concept the Self-Organising and Developmental Organisation.
