Agile leadership and management in a lean organisation

The objective of agile software development is to achieve business agility. It requires business leaders to align the organisation's structures, planning and communication with the needs of the delivery teams.

Done right, an aligned organisation will allow you and your organisation to respond to changing business needs faster than ever before. An agile transformation can also have a great impact outside of the software delivery groups.

We explore the core lean and agile frameworks and concepts with a focus on how to best apply them to improve business agility, including distributed and offshore teams.
