Why it's not enough to talk about more agility

All managers want more agile companies and complain that employees do not become “agile” overnight. Often, top management lacks the knowledge what agile ways of working really mean. And managers do not appreciate the critical role they play in agile transformations.

Agile transformations require the strong commitment of managers and the willingness to provide financial resources for the change process. However, the conscious transfer of responsibility to employees is equally important. It is not enough to tell employees that they have more power and independence, but they must also be granted both consciously. In order for agile to work, managers need to give up some of his or her own decision-making power, even if it is difficult. You cannot preach agility and at the same time be involved in every decision and have the last word.
