Governing with Agility

Traditional Agile leadership and governance structures are specifically designed to help teams excel when they are co-located, what can you do when that’s not possible?

Social distancing and lockdowns have forced an unexpected shift to remote working, and many businesses have been caught unprepared. While some had no remote working capability at all, others were able to successfully enable their whole company to work from home. However, once the initial shift was made, few have clear processes or procedures in place for how to work together remotely over a sustained amount of time. Traditional Agile leadership and governance structures are specifically designed to help teams excel when they are co-located, what can you do when that’s not possible?

As the ongoing impact of COVID-19 continues to emerge, organisations with Agile teams are among the best-positioned to succeed, given their ability to adapt to a rapidly changing business environment. With organisations focused on their ability to maintain profitability and survive, effectiveness and efficiency counts greatly. However to sustain the effectiveness of their Agile teams, leaders must now overcome a new challenge. We need to collectively modernise how we govern our work for both the next normal and a sustained remote working context. “There ‘aint no going back….”
