Overcoming hurdles when leading Agile transformations

Agile is a mindset, not a goal, that is the bottom line of this post. The previous post was about assessing how Agile you are. This one is about how to support the change process within your organisation. Although people often link Agile working to IT-projects, it can be applied to almost every situation. Therefore, this post is applicable to every change process that aims to introduce agility to an

How Agile are we, really?

Around 2009 at Goyello we decided to implement Scrum. So, you could think we are really Agile by now. But how sure can you be without any external verification?

Mom and pop store

Agile contracting a real challenge

This evening I had the pleasure to meet with the Agile community in Tri-City, Agile3M. After several discussions around working in an Agile way they were wondering how to solve the contracting with an external client. Honestly, this is a rather challenging topic. Based on mutual trust it’s possible to reach an agreement, but in case trust is lacking, it’s going to be a long, hard road.
