Agile is actually an approach and a Mindset, whereas most people misunderstand it as a set of practices. There are umpteen examples of people implementing the Agile practices and artefacts, but are failing to get the intended positive results. This is a classic problem of ‘doing Agile’ as opposed to aiming to ‘be Agile’. The key to getting the optimal benefits is having the Agile Mindset.

Mindset is abstract and hence one needs to understand it based on what is visible in behaviours, policies etc. The talk is about not only what these visible characteristics are, but also about what can be some of the enablers to move towards achieving the Agile Mindset. It has been proven that Leadership of an organization plays a key role in enabling the right Mindset, and hence this talk is meant for Leaders.

This presentation was delivered at Agile Leadership Day Conference at Zurich on Nov. 6, 2013 and at Agile Kerala 2013 at Trivandrum on Nov. 29, 2013
