3 things to make a giant leap towards Agility
via Scrum.org Blog by Stephan van Rooden
I believe there are three things you need to do regardless of the framework, methodology or program you are embracing with your organization. If you don’t do take decisions, focus on the outcome and get things done? Your transformation program, Agile Way of Working implementation, Lean initiative or whatever you do, will end up with all those other frameworks you have tried to apply before. You will never achieve the agility that was promised to you (by those expensive consultants).
Get ready for a free, simple and honest piece of advice. You might not like it. It might be a little painful. But it can save you a lot of money, frustration, and people leaving, just by reading this post. Let’s start off with some statements that might sound familiar:
“Our organization is doing Agile”,
“We adopted the Agile way of working”
“We do some elements of Agile”
as said by many leadership teams or recruitment agents
I have no idea what these statements mean! I have no clue what ‘the Agile way of Working’ is. What I do know is when I start a conversation about Agility with these companies. They don’t do any of the three things I will describe in the post. And to be honest. It doesn’t have anything to do with Agile.
