It is widely accepted that successful organisations need to be adaptable and responsive to survive and thrive in the constantly changing landscape that has become today’s norm. To address this dynamic, the focus must shift from the traditional concerns of “command and control” management to a people-centric model that is driven by delivering value and responding to customer needs.
This is achieved through harnessing the considerable power of the people within the organisation through autonomous teams that collaborate well with wider stakeholders. Business Agility delivers real “bottom line” results when the ethos and culture of the leadership provides balance between constant change and the complexities of interdependent multiple stakeholders.
The Framework for Business Agility embraces the philosophies and principles that underpin all Agile methods. It is an Agile framework that provides guidance and support for change teams to action and deliver any form of change in an incremental and sustainable way. Change initiatives may range from being team based to affecting the whole organisation. The Framework details process at project, programme and portfolio levels and is also explicit about the development of the Agile leaders at all levels necessary to implement and embed change.
Agile leadership is the base upon which effective change is built. The appropriate type of leadership is essential to focus and navigate the change; without it, the current culture will prevail and a diluted form of the change emerge. Constant, consistent and clear Agile leadership is the foundation stone of any change initiative. It underpins the Principles of Culture and Leadership to create an environment for effective innovation.
