This whitepaper discusses how ‘Agile’ - the act of exploring - will increase your understanding of the value you create, whilst also increasing your ability to add it.
There are as many reasons why you might want to increase your Agility. Perhaps your employees are de-motivated, you have high absenteeism or trouble with people jumping ship.
If these things are happening, you should probably be looking to an Agile mindset as a solution.
There are plenty of tools on the market that prescribe a set of practices and tools that are the 'silver bullet' for Agility adoption according to their makers. We don't believe there is a one-size-fits-all formula. In fact, by adopting a framework or organizational structure, you risk alienating your most important asset: the people making value for your customers.
Instead of looking at your Agile Transition as following a map, think of it as a path through unknown terrain. The best way to explore will reveal itself as you progress through the ever-changing landscape.
One of the things that need to be determined is where you want your path to lead. This can be a direction: what is beyond the western horizon? It can be a seemingly impossible feat: let's climb that mountain! Whatever your business goals - you will want some way of determining if you are getting closer.
Responding to change over following a plan.
- The Manifesto for Agile Software Development
Your Agile Transition Path will need a vision and goals to align around and key performance indicators to track progress against. And often the vision and goals will change - there is another horizon to explore or a higher peak to conquer. You will have to be able to find this out quickly and adapt to the new challenge easily!
