Being Agile in Project Delivery

We often hear leaders telling us they want their organisations and teams to “be more Agile”, to be “primed and to pivot” and ensure they are at the “forefront of new innovations and opportunities”, but what does this mean and why is it important?

Ultimately, agility refers to the way that organisations and project delivery teams are set-up to face change and whilst effective change management has in itself has become a major factor in the success of organisational initiatives, where does agility come into it?

Looking at the historical evolution of Agile principles and the Agile Coach role within the traditional software project delivery and today’s climate, it is clear that organisations and teams are striving to gain support in order to:

  • Understand changing customer needs and their company core strengths to set appropriate goals, strategy and vision and aligning through the ‘golden thread’ to understand each team’s and individuals role in achieving them.
  • Frequently and consistently delivering value, responsiveness and sustainability by breaking large complex initiatives or activities into smaller ‘bitesize’ chunks, iterations and evolutions.
  • Create a culture of forward momentum, collaboration and frequent value delivery, responding to changing circumstance and demand whilst learning and continually improving.

Therefore, this Agility is multi-faceted, starting at the highest level with strategy and vision and moving through to the individuals in the team, the project delivery processes supporting them as well as the overarching culture and leadership of the team and organisation.

Agility is a means to an end; therefore the Agile coach should have a more holistic approach which incorporates the entire team, including individuals, the culture, the strategy of the organisation as well as the project delivery process.
How to be Agile?

At the surface level, an Agile coach is there to support the team in ensuring the principles of the agile approach are followed. However, implementing Agile processes should not be the end goal. Agility is a means to an end; therefore the Agile coach should have a more holistic approach which incorporates the entire team, including individuals, the culture, the strategy of the organisation as well as the project delivery process.

This focus on ‘being agile’ rather than ‘doing agile’ unleashes individual creativity in the team and is critical to the success of the initiative and change. This cultural shift enables teams and organisations to be fully agile and not tied to an ‘agile’ process which paradoxically promotes rigidity.

A Questline Agile coach will facilitate this constant learning and continual improvement, where every situation can be reflected upon as a learning and growth opportunity.
