We believe that agile is not a process, methodology, or framework; it is a mindset that welcomes uncertainty, embraces challenges, empowers individuals, and views failure as a learning opportunity. Adopting an agile mindset unleashes the brilliance of people and teams, which enables rapid discovery and faster innovation. This is a game changer in today’s competitive and uncertain world.
There are a number of reasons why an Agile mindset is paramount on your Agile journey. Here are our top three:
- An Agile mindset helps you BE Agile while doing Agile. Well-known frameworks provide great tools and techniques to help teams execute in an agile manner. However, an Agile mindset is the key to BEING agile, resulting in sustainable agility manifested through people, not processes.
- An Agile mindset allows you to tailor methodologies for your reality. Agile processes will and should continue to evolve as organizations learn more and build agile capability. An Agile mindset gives you the flexibility to blend agile methods and even invent new frameworks to maximize collaboration and innovation.
- An Agile mindset helps bring out the best in your teams and organizations. Having an agile mindset is synonymous with a culture of continuous learning. Learning agility helps people reach their potential and is a critical ingredient for business agility.
