Business Agility in Automotive - A Case Study

Learning Points/Key Takeaways

Agile creates an environment and culture where:

  • Continuous Improvement: We are encouraged to recognize that everything can be improved and questioned.
  • Dysfunction Identification: Frustrating experiences signal a dysfunctional process that requires deeper examination.
  • Permission to Innovate: We are empowered to examine and improve processes.
  • Strategic Influence: Learn to identify and persuade the right stakeholders.
  • Alignment with Agile Values: Understand that all positive changes reflect closer alignment with the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto.
  • Experimental Approach: Framing changes as experiments within a control group increases the likelihood of gaining necessary permissions.
  • Sensitive Navigation: Addressing long-established processes requires careful handling. Discover and address the concerns people have about changing these processes, and provide assurances that proposed changes will alleviate those worries.
