In today’s fast-paced competitive marketplace, businesses have no choice but to embrace lean-agile practices to innovate quickly. Technology is changing so rapidly that it’s hard to keep up, beyond the routine technical changes; it is so adept at handling.
To create an environment promotive to innovation, leadership must build and nurture elements like people and culture, strategy, process, agile tools, and technology.
Being said so, where do we start - Start should be with the people who will be executing your vision: your employees. How you hire them, train them, and integrate them will set the stage for the agile culture you want to bring in, eliminating resistance from the down.
With all those positive pushes for enterprise agility, why do organizations fail or slow in adopting Agile? The answer is, it is difficult to shift a traditionally known delivery methodology into a culture across the entire organization. Organizations do recognize the benefits when implementing Agile at the team level; however, they face the heat when engaging in an organization-wide culture change. So, how do we address such challenges?
The answer is, that’s precisely what Scrum Master’s do with perfection.
