Senior Leadership Support Is All That Matters

I’ve tried to introduce ‘agile’ working methods into two different organisations. In organisation A, we persevered for about 6 months before reverting to traditional waterfall approaches.  In organisation B, we’re about 6 months in, and we’re flying!  The obvious question is, why the difference?

The organisations are comparable in size, work in the same sector, and offer the same services.  Three words:  Senior Leadership Support

In organisation A, we failed to enthuse the seniors.  In organisation B, the seniors have driven agile adoption.  What a difference that has made.  I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions on the importance of getting your leaders on-board for any Organisational Development initiative.
