How to execute Agile transformation 

What is Agile?

Agile principles have been one of the key drivers of IT companies’ ability to innovate, learn, and adapt rapidly. The term “agile” has now expanded to many facets of solution development with the same underlying principles. To survive and thrive, companies must, in turn, transform how they operate. Becoming an agile organization allows a company to increase speed of execution, better respond and adapt to customer needs, increase productivity, and engage and empower employees. Ultimately, an agile organization can deliver higher returns to shareholders.

Why Agile?

  • Agile organizations move faster, are more adaptable, and foster ownership mind-sets, resulting in greater productivity and reduced cost.

  • An agile transformation looks throughout the organization to find specific areas where an agile operating model can unlock value.

  • It’s time to move beyond a rigid hierarchy, silo business units, crippling bureaucracy and an increasingly unwieldy matrix.

Execution

Habits are powerful forces in our lives.

THE 4 DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION

The objective of the 4DX process is to teach leaders how to help their teams execute on their highest priorities in the midst of the whirlwind of the day-to-day. The goal is to foster a culture of getting the most important things done.

4 DX Disciplines

01. Focus on the Wildly Important.

Exceptional execution starts with narrowing the focus — clearly identifying what must be done, or nothing else you achieve really matters much.

03. Keep a Compelling Scoreboard.

People and teams play differently when they are keeping score, and the right kind of scoreboards motivate the players to win.

02. Act on the Lead Measures.

Twenty percent of activities produce eighty percent of results. The highest predictors of goal achievement are the 80/20 activities that are identified and codified into individual actions and tracked fanatically.

04. Create a Cadence of Accountability.

Great performers thrive in a culture of accountability that is frequent, positive, and self-directed. Each team engages in a simple weekly process that highlights successes, analyzes failures, and course-corrects as necessary, creating the ultimate performance-management system.

“Seventy percent of strategic failures are due to poor execution of leadership. It’s rarely for lack of smarts or vision.”
