…ow, we have talked about strategy and operations — but what is the gut-feeling for this big change? In my experience, agile creates a feeling of real autonomy, as well as accountability. You can’t blame the boss anymore! The pressure from your boss will be less, the pressure from your peers will be higher. The feeling of rowing together on a stormy sea in a small boat will be obvious and everybody needs to contribute according to their best ability. Continuous transparency also means that everybody has reliable and up to date information about what is going on — also when things go wrong.
3. Visualize your flow. Flow management techniques will limit your work in progress and create a focus on speed and throughput. Visualization of the workflow will also make it transparent and make co-workers aware of what is going on in the organization without spending time on creating advanced reports. Everybody from interns to the CEO will have instant insights into progress and impediments.
