PBA® Agile Mindset
Agility is a question of culture
Agility is more than methodologies, practices, meetings, and user stories. Agility requires a certain type of mindset, characterized by collaboration, interactions, speed, individuals, self-organization, and reflection. Truly implementing agile means that it has to become a part of your corporate culture.
"An agile transformation can deliver great value, but becoming agile isn't easy. It requires big changes in culture, values, and behaviors. It means a rapid evolution of the enterprise." Boston Consulting Group, BCG on agile, November 2018
"You can't buy Agile. Becoming a resilient organization and adapting to an Agile way of working requires a shift in mindset and culture. People need to communicate differently; collaboration between teams will change; and managers will have to become Agile leaders." www.agile42.com
Whether we are talking about corporate culture, the agile mindset, the digital mindset, the organization's ability to innovate, or the workplace culture expected by the young workforce, from a PBA® perspective these evaluation topics are all interrelated, as illustrated in this quote:
"Agile organizations appear to be powerful machines for innovation and learning."
The PBA® definition of an agile mindset: Individuals, teams, and organizations with an agile mindset can recruit personality systems that are optimally suited to perform the various tasks they encounter.
An agile mindset is connected to the self-steering competencies of individuals, teams, and organizations, and to personality system connections that include the extension memory.
