Bridging the Gap Between Agile and Change Management

Often organizations “fail with Agile” for a variety of reasons.  According to a recent survey from McKinsey & Co, 70% of change efforts fail and that’s got very little to do with Agile.

Agile is a trigger for change, not a destination or an objective.  Some in the Agile/Lean camps take different stances to bringing in change.  Some feel Kanban is best.  Some say Lean is best.  Some say you must change your culture and mindset.

At the end of the day, change is change and people react to change at different rates and different intensities.

On November 26, Jason Little, author of Agile Transformation: A Guide to Organizational Change and Andrew Annett, Agile Coach and Communication Professional presented “Managing Resistance to Change” at the Toronto Agile Tour.  The session was recorded and we’ll be posting the video as soon as it is processed and available.
