With the best intentions, organizations across the world have launched their agile transformation efforts. But many haven’t reaped the full benefits because they are ‘stuck’ in a form of agile that is starting to look like the bureaucracy that they initially wanted to bust: suffocated by top-down control, a lack of team autonomy and self-organization, enforcing agile frameworks, and unable to evolve the model if it isn’t functioning. Or even worse:
- Processes and tools over Individuals and interactions
- Comprehensive documentation over Working solutions
- Contract negotiation over Customer Collaboration
- Following a plan over Responding to change
Is this true for your organization? Or have you found a way out of it?
