Kathy’s Roundtable: The Agile Mindset – The Heart of an Agile Culture
Today, Agile seems to be everywhere. Many organisations are doing something “Agile” or implementing some sort of “Business Agility”. There are many methods and frameworks that are being used or tried. But there is a great difference between doing Agile and being Agile. It takes more than simply adopting Agile practices and processes to build a real Agile culture of collaboration, adaptation and transparency. It’s the Agile Mindset that enables leaders, teams, and whole organisations to truly adopt the Agile values and principles and reap real business benefits. This round table session will discuss the real heart of Agile, the Agile Mindset, and how the Agile Mindset is the essential element to create an Agile culture.
