3 Actionable Things To Make Your Scaling Successful
Change is hard (duh!) but the book Switch changed my life. While there are lots of change management models out there, Directing the Rider, Motivating the Elephant and Shaping the Path is the one I follow.
Scaling is hard too. But if we think about Change and Scaling together in the right way, maybe they don’t have to be quite so hard.
Recent polling of thousands of Scrum practitioners in the U.S. and Europe indicate that 66% of organizations are at the beginning stage of scaling Scrum. The State of Scrum report says 52% say their "organizational design and culture made it difficult to adopt and further scale Scrum". The State of Agile report says 63% say their "Company philosophy or culture [are] at odds with core agile values"
Think about your organization. Are executives disengaged? Are the agile teams executing independently like feral cats?
