By far the most common question I get asked is: “so after my organisation becomes Agile, what’s next?”
My answer today is the same as it has been over the years – that it is the wrong question to ask. Agile is not just a shiny fruit to pick from a tree, nor a stop to disembark from on a train line. Instead, it should be a journey which embraces continuous change, self-adaptivity and an open culture without adhering to immutable framework or processes.
I’d like to share some recommendations for organisations to maximize the benefit from adopting Agile, as well as several common misunderstandings to avoid.
