Scaling Agile is not the Path to Business Agility
This session: Scaling Agile is not the Path to Business Agility Today, Agile is the darling of the corporate world, and what we have gained in amplification, we have lost in vision and ambition. The large corporate business, challenged by new entrants, tech companies and blurred industry lines, is looking to drive sustained growth and unique competitive advantage. The enterprise pursues business agility by embarking in Agile, digitisation, and technology innovation initiatives. These transformational journeys are full of ups and downs. Copying the strategies, processes, and operating structures of Tech companies and Silicon Valley unicorns has delivered some results, but few corporate businesses have reached unicorn status. Over the years, those focused on implementing Agile and Lean have looked to decentralised, vertically oriented, and iterative delivery models to fuel operating model and value innovation. The codification and implementation of Agile started with a focus on effective technical delivery, shifted to encompass effective product innovation. These days, we work to pull apart both architectures and organisational structures into plug and play, adaptable building blocks to enable evolutionary design. In our view, many enterprise-wide agile transformation initiatives dropped the ball with an overemphasis on operating effectiveness at the expense of customer-centricity and connected experience. Corporate Agile initiatives have been pulling things and people apart into squads, products, and services. The highly effective and autonomous building blocks at best deliver fragmented value. For a while, we gain speed, but not sustainably; not when we fail to look at the bigger picture and orchestrate connected value and experience.
