Leadership within Lean-Agile Enterprises 

 

The move towards more responsive and higher performing IT organizations is well-established, using terms like Lean, Agile and DevOps. These philosophies have proven to be successful in sufficient cases that many businesses are following the lead of the early adopters.

Leaders play a somewhat confused role in the move to becoming a more agile organization. They enthusiastically embrace the possibility of escaping the current siloed structure, in which the massive amounts of coordination required cause a slow response to rapidly changing market conditions. On the other hand, as with previous attempts to improve the performance of their organization, they see this transformation as something that primarily affects the operational teams. This leads to a ‘missing link’ in most transformations: a lack of adjustment of leadership behaviors.

This white paper categorized the work of leaders into 6 areas:

  • Organizing
  • Visioning
  • Planning
  • Cascading
  • Monitoring
  • Developing
