Research (conducted by AgileCxO) showed that over 80% of companies using Agile delivery models are either stuck in the adopting or in the maturing phase and are therefore not experiencing the full value that Agile delivery can provide. Mckinsey research showed that only 4% of organizations studied are enterprise wide following Agile values.
Agile methodologies are becoming used more in a broader area of work outside of software delivery. Service development, Marketing, Support and Sales are seeing the value of having the ability to quickly adapt, mitigate risks sooner, and efficiently get work done for internal or external clients.
Unfortunately the majority of organizations get stuck in a Tactical strategy loop due to dealing with “fire, fights”, which takes time away from the Strategical thinking needed to bring the organization to the next level. A continuous Tactical mindset is stressful and exhausting to everyone involved. That stress and need for a large audience to put out these “fires” impact employee satisfaction which in turn will impact client satisfaction.
