The Lean-Agile Leader: My Vision, Your Vision, Our Vision

Traditional leadership called senior leaders to have a vision and then to get the organisation to execute it.

"Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion."
- Jack Welch

Lean and Agile perspectives call us instead to look to everyone in an organisation as a source and contributor of vision - to understand that a huge part of an organisation’s visionary insight comes from the people doing the real hands-on work. The true personal visions of all team members are the foundation of any collective vision.

The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.”

Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.”

-Principles of the Agile manifesto

Make people awesome? Please don't. Just let people alone. They'll be awesome if they want to be.
