Agile mindset

Agility is an attitude, not a method or tool. It is also not something that can be introduced simply through a project. To be successful as a manager in increasingly agile contexts, it is necessary to abandon routine procedures and develop new ones. Our brain has the ability to critically rethink entrenched thought patterns and also to change them – for a lifetime. The starting point for an organisation to become more agile is, therefore, to develop an agile mindset.

BEING AGILE

Organisations function as social systems. Thus the “introduction” of agility through the establishment of agile methods is not very sustainable. We recommend to start the topic of agility from the other side of the funnel and to deal with the topic of agility as an attitude in order to “disturb” one’s own organisation step by step in such a way that the topic is given more and more space and attention and that the organisation and its members have time to learn to be agile – through discourse, reflection and a common picture of where to go.
