What Managers Can Do To Support Agile Transformation

What Managers Can Do To Support Agile Transformation | Agile for Web Project Managers | Scoop.it
Agile requires a collaborative culture. That’s where HR comes in. To ensure a smooth and appropriate transition to the Agile approach, organisations need to consider a variety of factors.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

When I read about other parts of an organization becoming more agile, I wonder if they are just talking about improving their leadership. In my mind, collaboration is not some secret that evolved from the mainifesto. Every business unit should reflect a culture of collaboration. However, if it takes other business units learning about Agile PM to learn to have their employees work together to achieve their goals, then I'm all for them learning about Agile PM.
