So why do agile transformations fail?

  • Organisations ‘do’ agile instead of ‘being’ agile
  • Planning, prioritisation and governance are focused around milestones and deliverables
  • Organisations take a one-size-fits-all approach and attempt to make all teams agile
  • Legacy technology doesn’t support agility
  • Solutions are delivered in ‘sprints’ but the value is only realised at the end of delivery

Our counter to these five causes of agile transformation failure are simple:

  • Mindsets are key
  • Prioritisation and funding need to be value-based
  • Agile investment needs to focus on teams that drive the greatest market differentiation
  • Establish a technology platform that unlocks delivery at pace
  • Define and deliver an Minimal Viable Product (MVP) and improve it iteratively
