Agile isn’t just a framework, it’s a mindset. It means adapting to change, learning from mistakes and growing as a team. But leaders often forget this and find it difficult to successfully implement Agile in their organizations.
Changing titles and using the language of Agile is just the start of adopting an agile way of working. It’s more important that the people adopt an agile mindset and this means changing the culture of the organization. Without changing the culture, agile ways of working will never really take hold and the benefits will never truly be realized.
