Leading change

Elephants can dance: two contrasting transformation

Of all the organisations that have so far attempted to be Agile, only few have truly succeeded. The primary reasons for lack of success appears to be a lack of understanding of the difference between Agile adoption and transformation, failing to understand that Agile is a mindset and not a collection of processes, and that transformation has to do with significant changes to the organisational ecosystem. Evidence is also available that companies have found it much harder to do Agile transformation as compared to Agile adoption.

In this talk, Sunil Mundra will showcase two contrasting case studies, one a failure and the other a success in Agile transformation, to bring out the key variables that determine success or failure. Sunil will offer practical recommendations on enablers for successful Agile transformation.
