With business environments becoming increasingly volatile and many companies facing the threat of industry disruption, many organizations are seeing the benefits of the Agile approach, which promotes adaptive planning and sustainable, goal-oriented development. However, business leaders and experts have found that following the principles of the Agile Methodology alone is less effective for an organization than adopting an Agile Mindset.
“There is a difference between ‘doing Agile’, adopting those known Agile frameworks and practices, and truly being Agile [...] There's the set of practices, and there's the mindset. And that's definitely a place where SuccessFinder has experience and expertise […] We really wanted to build an empirically validated model that could help organizations understand Agile through a behavioral lens.”
