"Building an Agile Culture"
Agile principles have been one of the key drivers of Silicon Valley’s ability to innovate, learn, and adapt rapidly. Agile culture makes it easier for the company to go to market with ideas more quickly than ever before, but also helps to attract and retain talent, which is one of the key areas for success in digital business.
Agile started as a set of principles for software development to write and release code iteratively without waiting for months (or years) to release functionality. In the digital era, more and more companies of different sizes and across industries are extending this philosophy to the wider business to operate with speed and manage unpredictability.
Most large firms today are not agile. A recent Deloitte survey of more than 10,000 senior executives revealed that less than 10% of senior executives see their current organization as “highly agile today.” Yet more than 90% of those executives see “agility and collaboration” as critical to their firm’s success. This in turn reflects findings by McKinsey & Company that firms and units implementing Agile do better financially than those that don't.
HR departments and professionals have been experimenting with the introduction of agile principles, practices and ways of working in their work and within their organization and, more and more, we see HR is called upon to support an enterprise wide agile transformation.
How do we get our large organizations to adapt and move as quickly as these nimble start-ups? The answer in many cases has to do with being more agile. But creating an Agile culture does not happen overnight. Becoming a resilient organization and adapting to an Agile way of working requires a shift in mindset and culture.
