Position: Head of Business Analysis
|Presentation: Attaining individual agility – the secret is in the wings
So often we treat the ‘Agile’ methodology as an ‘outside-in’ phenomenon, an external change that needs to be imposed on us by the ‘powers that be’. We ‘objectify’ it and perceive it as something that lives outside of us as individuals. We never see it as part of who we are, but as something owned and driven from the top to the bottom. While the latter statement might hold to some extent, because executive buy-in, direction and behaviour is instrumental in dictating the culture of any organisation, individual behaviour within an organization is the lifeblood that sustains its culture. Individuals have the power to sabotage Agile transformation through passive resistance. However, they also have the power to make this change meaningful and real. The truth is that the success of Agile transformation rests on the ‘inside-out’ approach. And this is where our characteristics towards agility need to be examined closely.
