Key Findings Include:
Think Big – Start Small: The “learn-build-scale” principle is a best practice framework for transitioning to an agile organization. Start with small steps and learn. Discuss insights and further questions with your team. As necessary, create new standards and processes for your most important and regular questions. Develop agile processes that allow fast, interactive communication. Share your successes and pursue developed processes further.
Don’t Blame the People, Improve the System: If you think your team is not motivated to pursue the new agile strategy, first consider your work processes and rules. The problem is never the people, it’s the process. The “Knowledge – Understanding – Ability – Permission” model helps to set you up for success.
Does everyone on the team know the goals?
Does the staff understand why this needs to be done?
Are the necessary skills present in the team?
Do the rules and processes allow the team to use the new techniques?
