Agile Transitions for Managers - Agile Resources
Why and How to do an Agile Transition
Teams and organizations have their own unique reasons for wanting to become Agile. Reasons such as higher efficiency, better team performance, faster delivery and many others are often stated. What ever your reason, Agile will bring you better collaboration, communication and transparency. However, let it be said: There is no blueprint to becoming Agile. As your team or organization is unique, so to will be your Agile implementation.
Agile within a Team
At a team level Agile manifests itself by allowing a group of people to grow together through collaboration – by committing as a whole to a common and shared goal. Agile creates new responsibilities, clarifies expectations and provides a working environment which is based on trust and transparency. The framework Scrum is often used to support the Agile way of working, as well as Kanban and XP among others.
Agile within an Organization
Becoming Agile as an organization initiates a change within the organizational culture, since to become Agile requires embracing a different set of value and principles, and thereby, establishing a mindset strongly based on collaboration and focused on delivering customer value.
For an organization to function properly and with high level of efficiency, all dimensions need to be considered and aligned. The goal is to reduce process overhead as much as possible and create an environment of continuous improvement.
The Enterprise Transition Framework™ (ETF) is enabling an organization to implement the Agile Principles and Values globally, beyond the team’s level. The ETF provides for a whole organization to evolve incrementally and improve the same way agile teams do: through a continuous learning processes with fast feedback cycle and regular retrospectives. By focusing on evaluating the changes – normally experimented through a set of pilot projects – and agreeing on what makes sense to adopt permanently and roll-out to the rest of the organization, you will be able to transition to an Agile organization with limited risk and guaranteed long-term success.
What Impact will Agile have on Your Organization?
Agile has much to do with focus, adaptability, discipline, structure and... yes, also the readiness and willingness to challenge the status quo. The unique environment, culture, relationship, maturity and market situation of your organization determine the focus and effort you must put in to make an Agile Transition successful.
Most important here is that you do not underestimate the complexity and impact of the change you are considering.
In order to reach your goals with more predictability, to create a motivating work environment and to strengthen your position in the market – just to name some of the benefits coming from Agile – you will need to think far beyond Product Development. You will need to learn what are the “right things” to do and how to reach a sustainable continuous improvement.
