5 Steps to Agile Leadership
Adopting agile processes helps organizations to adapt to new technologies, cater to changing customer demands and respond intelligently to sudden shifts in market conditions. Although your organization will be operating at an accelerated pace, there are steps you can take as a leader that will prevent you from being swept off your feet.
EMBRACE THE AGE OF AGILE
Welcome to the age of agile. Learn why flexibility is your best hope for survival in today's uncertain world.
BUILD A STRONG CULTURAL FOUNDATION
To sustain acceleration, focus on building a strong organizational culture first. Use a META – “Mobilize, Execute and Transform with Agility” – framework for change.
RESTRUCTURE YOUR ORGANIZATION FOR AGILITY
To enable your organization to keep pace with continual change and deliver integrated customer solutions quickly, build a team-based organizational structure bound together by clear, company-wide objectives.
INVEST IN TEAMS
Adaptive and agile teams are critical for organizational performance and success. Nurture collaborative teams rather than individual workplace superstars to boost your organization's productivity.
Agile organizations run on autonomous, aligned teams. Don't micromanage. As a leader, your responsibility is to align the company around its "what" and "why," and to give teams the space to experiment and take risks.
