Agile change management is a set of principles that can help change practitioners focus efforts on the most important activities, determined by customer value and stakeholder impact. It provides a lean, flexible and iterative approach to achieving sustainable change in an Agile environment.
In an environment of technology disruption, organisations are increasingly challenged to make change happen at scale and at speed. Their ability to be responsive to customer and stakeholder needs and adaptive to changing priorities will drive competitive advantage. Agile has a key role to play in enabling these outcomes.
To play their part, change managers need to adapt their approach, mindset and toolkit. There is no silver bullet, but the lessons learnt and principles shared in this point of view will help avoid common mistakes when managing change in Agile environments.
Whether you are supporting change on an Agile project, or a more conventional Waterfall delivery, embracing Agile change principles can make you a more effective, customer-focused and integrated change manager and bring faster, better outcomes.
