One frustrated and frightened change-team leader attempting to use Agile and other change methods to create Business Agility recently said to me, “I feel like Victor Frankenstein. I think we’ve created something awful, combing all of these different tools; it’s not what we intended. We’re now being confronted by the monster and I fear our business isn’t going to survive.”
Choosing what organisational change methodologies to use in a transformation program can be daunting, particularly as different tools often become a mishmash -- a confused mixture of Lean, Agile, Business Agility and many others. If you are a change leader looking to develop yourself and your team and ultimately create a successful business, having purpose is crucial.
