The Vital Role of Culture and Commitment
CEOs recognize that their organization’s success depends on the ability to adapt and respond to change. But transforming an organization to achieve greater agility can be challenging. Factors that impact agility include lack of executive sponsorship, inability to change the culture, not taking an organization-wide view, underestimating the impact of change, and failing to support old and new approaches during transition.
Organizational agility is a competence, not a method. The report recommends:
- Establishing a formal agile transformation program that reports to the CEO
- Focusing on the people with training and coaching to help them transition to their new roles
- Transforming in waves, with associated business, technology, and infrastructure groups becoming agile together
- Monitoring to prevent the program from stalling and to achieve maximum benefits
