If you've worked in a large organization, you know how slow and difficult it is for them to change. The thing with Enterprise Agile (or any other large organizational change), is they tend to follow the same pattern: Appoint a centralized department to devise an enterprise-wide process, ...

Perhaps we're putting too much emphasis on treating our Agile Transformations like big projects, when we should be considering Agile Transformation to be more about inspiring a series of small, well-timed social movements.

“What's the urgency for change?” My experience tells me when people talk about urgency for change, they are asking for a few things…and what they're asking for is a matter of perspective. The people who have the agile mindset, want their beliefs reinforced. Their urgency is to convince people ...

5 Things Change Certification Courses Can't Teach You
Is certification the only way forward? Nothing gets people more riled up than a good 'ol certification debate! I posted my frustration with this on twitter and was met with some snarky comments from friends about the “OMG, someone is wrong on the internet!!!” problem. Well, they ARE wrong, ...

We're great at talking about what we should change, but what can we do to keep the things that make us a great organization?
In today's world, the organizational lifespan is shrinking, and established organizations are trying to figure out how to remain relevant. Given today's instant-gratification society, humans are wired to expect instant, or near-instant outcomes, when taking action.

some things seem impossible until you see it's been done before...
Read any article about how to ensure successful change (or why changes fail), and you're likely to see these patterns: we need communication, top-down support, strong leadership, a reason why (urgency), motivated individuals, and the right change method to follow.

A sneak peek at my next book...
I've worked with enough large organizations to see patterns in how they typically approach Agile Transformation: Someone gets excited about Agile for some reason, and people who get agile, run with it. Someone in the existing hierarchical structure becomes responsible for it.

My latest podcast...are centralized change teams an outdated concept, or merely executed poorly by organizations that are 'going agile'?
Last December, Ty Crockett and I were back and forth on Twitter about our experiences with centralized change teams: Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 2.36.46 PM. Well, it took a couple of months longer than expected, but we finally had the chance to connect and record the podcast!

Before you inflict your change framework on people...think about using stories instead.
We're 4 days into the New Year which means 92% of the world population has already given up on their New Year's resolutions, and there are already 249000000 results in Google for '2016 Management Trends'. The New Year brings with it a feeling of re-birth, and the opportunity to change something, ...

I emailed 3 dealers for a 'best price' on the same model with the same options. I went with South Oakville because I've gone through those knockdown, drag-out marathons where the dealer keeps you in the showroom for hours and these guys proved right away they were willing to give a fair price, with quick service. I was clear that I was ready to buy so there was no BS, the deal moved quickly and I felt the price was fair.
