Bringing Leadership Agility to Agile
Cutter Business Technology Journal
August 01, 2017
In pursuit of true organizational agility, many companies that use Agile, and the consulting firms who work with them, are feeling an urgent need to place greater emphasis on Agile leadership. But are current conceptions of Agile leadership all they need to be? In this article, I present an enhanced vision of Agile leadership called “Leadership Agility.” This body of work stresses the importance of helping managers develop the cognitive and emotional capacities (not just mindset) needed to be agile. I use two
scenarios to illustrate the stages by which Agile leadership capacities can be deliberately developed and the contribution this can make to Agile and to business performance. One scenario is a Scrum adoption; the other is an Agile transformation.
