Agile vs Agility - the Challenge of Management

As Agile practices at the team– and even program–level have matured the problem of persistent agile transformation, as well as agile transformation at scale, remain tough for practitioners. Too often we transform at the working level and the changes are immediately positive. But those changes degrade over time and we find that a year after the change agents have left many of the benefits are no longer present. Or else we struggle to transform large organizations to true agility — with tight coupling between strategic decisions and execution on the ground.

Why?

Because the agile components are being managed — their budgets are set, their HR patterns of hiring, retention, and promotion are designed — within a traditional management hierarchy. So what do we, as people who own transformation, do?
