Agile and Agility for everyone

Transformation isn’t just about technology. Until now, Agile methods and certifications such as Lean and Kanban have focused on the IT function and the delivery of software.

AgileSHIFT® is a new guide to help prepare individuals and organisations for transformational shift by creating a culture of enterprise agility. This cultural change is not driven by simply adopting an Agile method or tool, but by understanding and distilling the ethos behind agile ways of working and leveraging them across the entire organisation.

Many organisations undergoing transformation are adopting agile to deliver their projects and programs. Yet a frequent problem is the creation of isolated agile delivery teams unsupported by a wider organizational engagement initiative. It is imperative that these agile delivery teams interact with other business functions such as Finance, HR, Operations, Sales & Marketing and Legal. Very often these teams do not know why an agile approach is being used, the benefits it offers or how best to adopt that way of working. These teams simply aren’t geared to embrace an alternative to their usual working processes. It’s at this intersection that current approaches to organisational-agility are failing.
