Digital Transformation Requires Enterprise-Wide Agile Transformation
By Jason Bloomberg

Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation.

In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the connection between building better software and business agility has been a tenuous one at best. But now that Agile is maturing and Digital Transformation is driving change across enterprises large and small, companies are realizing that their best bet for achieving business agility is to take the best of Agile and apply it across the entire organization.

The first step in this ‘Agile transformation’: moving away from traditional hierarchical organizational models to small, self-organizing teams. Executives must learn the fine art of Agile leadership. The challenge: balancing Agile and traditional management approaches.

  • Understand the principles for creating and managing self-organizing teams
  • Gain an appreciation for the fact that organizations must be ‘all in’ with Agile transformation to succeed with Digital Transformation
