An Agile mindset believes that diverse teams with complementary skills are best equipped to thrive in today’s business environments.
Many organizations, working with Agile methodologies, talk about changing mindsets. I know from extensive experience that Agile principles and practices by themselves will not lead to this kind of transformation. A real Agile transformation is about not just doing Agile, but being Agile.
‘Follow Agile’ mindset will only help us get into the water but ‘Being Agile’ mindset will help us swim in the current. Most Agile implementations fail and their practitioners cannot tell why. Managers jump onto the Agile bandwagon, and quickly discover that the change runs much deeper and wider than they’d been told. Worse yet, people decide for or against Agile without understanding it properly. It does not have to be this way. This will be an interactive workshop leading toward the Agility.
