Large Agile Transformations: A Roadmap for Lasting Change

Agile methods have gained the attention of leaders as a way to speed time to market and increase motivation. Businesses are looking to agile as a way to achieve organizational change so teams deliver more value faster, and where people’s pride and joy of work are enhanced. However, we know from extensive experience that agile practices by themselves will not lead to this kind of an organizational transformation. What does it take? To drive results and create lasting change, the key is to motivate people about this way of working, and create meaningful communications to get buy-in from stakeholders. Ole and Jenni Jepsen go deeper into the steps for successful agile transformations in large organizations—how to form a transformation team with decision-making power, how to engage with strategic goals and set clear direction, how to get buy-in for new ways of working at every level, and how to involve as many people as possible in the transformation.
