I wrote this series because I find that many people get a little confused about an agile transformation.

They think an agile approach will work because they can predict and commit better. They don't realize encouraging change is a better approach.

They think an agile approach will help with full utilization. They don't realize emphasizing collaboration for faster throughput is more effective.

They want the agile approach to succeed, so they think mandating specific practices will work. But, because everyone's context is different, they could have more success with principles instead of practices.

People who are accustomed to only one deliverable for many weeks or months feel this way. They are not bad people. However, they don't know what their options are, nor how to accomplish them.

If you recognize these challenges in your organization, consider joining Gil Broza and me at the Influential Agile Leader workshop in Toronto, April 24-25, 2019. You'll see who holds which beliefs, and where you might start to influence them. Please join us.

Help your agile transformation succeed. Discover the beliefs people hold, and experiment with how you can help them work differently.
