Agile is often considered the cool thing to do. Leaders focus on getting ticking the boxes to get themselves certified as agile. Is their commitment enough? How much of the success depends on active leadership as opposed to the generally pervasive way of delegation? Is an in house transformation more successful than outsourcing the transformation? I like to explain this through LIDO[Lead, Inhouse, Delegate, Outsource] quadrant which explains how these various parameters affect the transformation in an organisation. I would also introduce what I call as the "Law of Conservation of Agility"
