2. Invest in People
Employees are often called an organization’s greatest asset, and this holds true when you are making a shift to Agile. The success or failure of your shift to Agile will rise and fall with your employees. They can champion your cause and take it across the finish line or leave it dead in the water. Because of this, you will need to invest in people to make your shift successful. You can do this in a number of ways, but you should start with providing them training. While you may have employees familiar with the Agile methodology in your organization, most probably don’t have any experience with Agile. They will need guidance on the new procedures and methods associated with working Agile. When employees feel comfortable with the methodology, they will have the confidence to use it and use it well.
