Organizations around the globe are responding to the turbulence of today’s world by adopting Agile development processes in their product and service delivery, since Agile provides well-tested methods to improve a company’s speed, customer satisfaction, and quality of delivery.
However, adopting Agile is not simply a matter of “installing” Agile. Rather, by its very nature, an Agile adoption is an organizational change effort. But change is really hard. As a recent study of more than 100 major change efforts demonstrated, 85% don’t yield tangible, durable results. Why? Changing a complex organizational system requires a broadly holistic, systemic approach, especially from an organization’s leaders. Agile can increase organizational capability, but it also can raise existing challenges to the surface.
The challenge to leadership is not just being more business- or tech-savvy. Rather, it is a matter of helping leaders transform the way they think and see the world—a shift in their consciousness—in order to effectively address the new challenges of our times. The old ways simply cannot work.
