Agile Transition or Transformation? It Depends on What and How You Assess the Organization
 
Most agile assessments make primary use of questionnaires and spreadsheets to determine a client’s capability to adopt agile. These instruments can be valuable, but can often miss obtaining an understanding of the organizational ecosystem in which we’re introducing agile. In a recent engagement, we used a “Whole Systems” approach that enabled us to identify and surface organizational issues that would not be captured with spreadsheets, including structure, leadership, performance management, history, and culture. The depth and extent of the Whole Systems approach enabled us to craft a transformation roadmap with the client that encompassed all aspects of the organization and is enabling a full enterprise agile transformation. This presentation will describe the difference between transitional and transformational change, our approach, sample findings, and how the approach is enabling our client to take their own whole systems approach to their transformation to agile.
