SWARMing part III: achieving agility at scale
Business agility is no longer a luxury. In today’s market, companies that can’t adapt quickly to changing circumstances simply won’t survive. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown how quickly the entire enterprise context can change.
Many companies choose to invest in branded frameworks that promise to “scale agile” but inevitably end up an expensive and time-consuming distraction with no meaningful change.
In part III of Daniel Terhorst-North’s SWARMing trilogy, he teams up with Anna Urbaniak to explain that achieving agility at scale requires marrying alignment with autonomy. Anna and Daniel demystify these terms, explain why they matter, and offer pragmatic advice for achieving agility at scale.
