Lean & Agile way of working has become almost the default approach in continuous application development and IT projects. Outside IT, agile approaches are successfully used in areas such as marketing, HR, banking and insurance, construction, retail and healthcare. The manufacturing industry has also started to utilize agile in the development of products and services.
By incorporating Lean Thinking and Agile working ways in their organizations, leaders can achieve financial benefits, improve value creation, and deliver outcomes with higher quality. Agility enables flexibility, smoother collaboration and better steering due to faster response to change. The most popular agile frameworks in use are Scrum and Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®), but others such as Kanban, DevOps, LeSS and Lean Six Sigma are also used. There is also a trend today for organisations to take inspiration from one or more frameworks rather than adopting any framework directly as such.
In a survey published in the State of Agile report, where the respondents are of course already using agile quite heavily, 80% has selected agility as their preferred approach. This is not surprising, due to the respondents’ agile familiarity, but what makes the results interesting, is that half of the respondents use agile together with other approaches such as the traditional project model. So, as usual, the world is not black and white here either.
Learning agility can be thought of as a step-by-step learning path: first acquire the basics of agility, then hone your skills for different agile roles, and finally learn how to scale and improve the practices and the way of work holistically.
