About this Case Study

Of all the organisations that have attempted to be agile, only a few have truly succeeded. The primary reason for this is a lack of understanding and appreciation of how profound and radical the changes needed for a transformation are. The scope of change is not just limited to people and processes, but includes mindset and culture as well. And the changes are not limited just to IT, but encompass most of the critical parts of an organisation.

I will showcase 2 contrasting agile transformation case studies, one a failure and the other a success, to show what determines success or failure. I'll summarise the challenges and offer recommendations on overcoming them.
