How To Use Agile To Scale Rapidly In An Uncertain World? Until recent times, we have been living in a world where survival is possible with an OK culture, OK performance and OK improvement. Since the Great Depression and World War II, we have not seen the dramatic changes and uncertainty we are now seeing. The military term VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) is becoming part of our general vocabulary.
It is not all doom and gloom. Even during these highly disruptive world events, the great organisations achieved terrific things for their country and themselves. We see the same occur now, and the great companies are achieving amazing things for themselves, their people and the planet. How are they doing it?
They have developed cultures of accelerating continuous improvement and innovation at all levels of their organisations, focusing on front line autonomy and servant leadership. They are connected, nimble organisations, and they can adapt quickly to customer feedback, insights from the market, and political situations……………….. they’re Agile.
The answer is simple, roll out Agile, and everything will be apples! Unfortunately, it is not that simple (Over 50% of Agile Transformations fail), yet it is not hard. There are four steps an organisation can take to create a successful Agile transformation.
- Create a pilot group of Agile/Scrum excellence.
- Leverage and multiply greatness taking an I do, We do, You do approach.
- Scale the program to provide alignment and support between and around the initial and future teams.
- Continuously improve your leadership skills at leading Excellence where it counts.
In the world we are in now, with the future we face, OK will not work. The excellent organisations will survive and thrive while the others will make way for them. Join me and Alex Teoh in the upcoming Future Industries Australia webinar for a deep dive into the four steps an organisation can take to transform to become truly Agile to achieve great things.
