You want to be Agile. I get it. But whenever a business leader tells me that they want to be “Agile”, my first question is: “Why? What does that mean to you? And how will you know if you’re making progress?”
Real Agile transformations are hard…. really hard. They require organizational fortitude, tough prioritization choices, institutionalized trust, and a team of leaders who is willing to constantly encourage small failures.
There are 3 phases of agility:
- Knowing Agile
- Doing Agile
- Being Agile
Knowing Agile is providing academic information about business agility and Agile practices. It starts with training and education, and often includes some level of certification or recognition that training has been completed. It typically does not include practical knowledge or experience.
