Not everyone will think so.
When you introduce agile ways of working – or any other framework – in your organization, #changemanagement enables you to make the introduction sensible and the implementation sustainable. It’s how you anchor ownership.
Every change starts with soulsearching – what’s the true reason we want to do this? What is the value we gain, as an organization, for the individuals involved, for society at large?
If you can’t spot value: Stop. Listen. Rethink.
If you identify value, go ahead. Craft your project/implementation plan. Bring in the coaches, scrum masters, and product owners. Enable your people.
Communicate and listen.
It is likely to be a major overhaul of how people work and collaborate. You need to prepare them for that – both in body, mind, and soul.
You need to have a compelling and relatable vision for where the change will take you, paired with a realistic view of how difficult it will be to reach the desired state, and a well thought through plan for how to make it happen.
A plan that individuals can see themselves in, so they understand what will happen to their job and how they will gain the skills to operate in a changed world. A plan that addresses their uncertainties.
