Enabling Agile Leadership

According to VersionOne’s 8th Annual State of Agile Survey, the biggest challenge in successfully implementing agile is the corporate culture, and its inability to embrace and adapt to change. The traditional management mindset is becomming a barrier that keeps teams from success, rather than something that helps them succeed.

If you want your agile implementation to be succesful, it is imparative to remember that you are implementing a cultural change. No matter which agile method or framework you consider, they are all based on some fundamental values that are very dangerous to compromize.

According to the Agile Manifesto we value:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Through our many years of implementing agile in different organizations, we realize how important it becomes for the leaders to understand these core values, and what impact it has on how you manage and lead your organization.

CoreAgile can help you throughout the transformation, and provide you with the practical experience that makes it easier to navigate in the real world.
