An Agile Transformation Roadmap for Change
When you’re creating an Agile Transformation Roadmap, the challenge is getting people to see the possibilities. When you’re close to the change, it’s hard to visualize how to get from point A to point B when your vision is clouded by uncertainty.
But if you can provide a pragmatic roadmap, or plan of attack for how to deal with dependencies, overcome resistance, and clear organizational impediments, you’ll be surprised at how willing people are to change.
The first step to creating an Agile Transformation Roadmap for change is to understand what constraints your organization is dealing with, what goals it’s trying to achieve, and where it wants to be in the future. Having this knowledge helps you craft a plan for how you’re going to iteratively & incrementally move Expeditions through Basecamps to get your organization to its desired end state.
In this video, Mike Cottmeyer takes a closer look at something we call the 4 Quadrants—a thinking tool we use to help organizations understand how constraints are driving their decision making and assist them in visualizing the steps they can take, over time, to change the constraints so that they have more flexibility in the future.
Over the course of the video, Mike will tell you a little bit about how the 4 Quadrants came to be, give insights on how to move from one quadrant to the next, and provide tips and tricks for how you can get the most out of the 4 Quadrants thinking tool. By the end of the video, you should have a better understanding of what constraints your organization is up against and the ability to see a path forward. Additionally, you will have gained the knowledge you need to accomplish the first step of creating an Agile Transformation Roadmap that will enable the change you desire.
