Agility is a growing buzzword and increasingly, organisations are trying to land it across their businesses. Many agile transformation programmes are failing to achieve their goals, largely due to employee resistance, and lack of leadership support. We all want to be agile, and understand the benefits of working with agility, but wonder if it is limited to our technology departments, and if not, how do we extend agility more widely?
This book will address what we mean by Enterprise Agility, and how to think about your organisation and agile transformations as systems. We will dive into organisational culture, structure and people – your leaders and getting everyone excited and invested about agility. Finally, we will answer the burning question around how to work smartly, to scale and support agility across the enterprise.
