Agile Transformation evokes aspirations of lean, nimble, value-driven practices that will set the organization on a path of success to increased profitability, market dominance, and competition-crushing products. While these statements can be very true, the road to becoming an Agile enterprise can be a gnarly experience.
So what is an agile enterprise? It’s the ability to rapidly adapt to internal and external changes without losing momentum.
Becoming an agile organization is as much about culture as it is lean processes. An agile culture fosters small teams that collaborate dynamically with less formal meetings. This eliminates the “design by committee” approach that is a dead weight plaguing many organizations.
Historically, the larger an organization becomes, the less agile they become too. Take for example brand giants Eastman Kodak and Polaroid. Arguably the most dominant powers photographic film and instant cameras. However, the two had become so large that with the over-night advent and rapid evolution of digital photography, they were out-paced and fell into oblivion due to their inability to adapt.
Agility is a powerful competitive advantage. harnessing its principles will enable faster time-to-market and yield cost reduction that can be re-invested to fuel further growth.

Attaining an ability for an organization to scale in excellence requires more than a vision, a point in time, or an assembly of skills.

Leadership is not about cultivating a throng of followers and demand they execute on a task. Instead, success is attained by shepherding, protecting and guiding. Agile Transformation demands roles that harness the collective genius of those around them to innovate, accelerate and remove barriers.
