Release fast or release effortlessly?

When most organisations "go agile" they first thing they announce is that there will release to market faster. I would like to argue that often, focusing on going fast harms both the organisation and the people who work for them.

Speed does not come by decree or because we have a few scrum teams, but by fixing our systems to make releases effortless.
