Agile by Name, Agile by Nature

Insights | 09 October 2017


Everyone’s talking about it.

If you’re one of the few waiting for this ‘trend’ to pass, well you might need to change jobs.

In our twenty years’, disruption has never been faster and change has never been surer. And that means extremely efficient methods of responding to this velocity, such as agile, are staying put.

And whilst we prefer to think about ‘agile’ as business agility, implementing Agile at an enterprise level needs to be sponsored from the top.Tweet: Implementing Agile at an enterprise level needs to be sponsored from the top. [@PMPartners] As all complex change does – especially if you are determined to avoid some of the cultural, structural and leadership barriers to successful adoption.

The good news is that as industry moves further along the journey of adoption and understanding of agile techniques, the turbulence of how to do what and when will become smoother because more knowledge and experience will be available.

The other side of this is that we’re still relatively early in the journey. And legacy organisations may find it more challenging than adaptive businesses to change – and let’s face it, the majority of more traditional businesses are the ones facing most competition and need to disrupt their own existing inefficiencies.Tweet: Majority of traditional businesses are facing competition & need to disrupt their own existing inefficiencies

However, it’s not ‘all or nothing’ with Agile…  Traditional and Agile techniques have their place, PMOs still have a vital role, Project and Programme managers are still needed – we just need to adapt to a new way of working.

There’s never been a better time to focus on running the right things and delivering the most important benefits first, that’s got to be a good thing.
