It’s no secret agile projects can fail, but do you know the reasons for agile failure and how to avoid them? I could tell you why I think they fail. Instead, let me share what nearly 4,000 of your colleagues said were the eight reasons why agile projects fail and what you can do about it.
According to Lynda Gratton, work is no longer being defined by HR, but rather by ‘context’, which is created by the emergence of megatrends and their impact on society: “Work is being shaped by technology, globalisation, democracy and the ageing workforce, and the opportunity you have to make work as you want it,” she tells me. “We are now faced with a “hollowing out” of work – medium-skilled jobs have disappeared and are being replaced by technology, so there’s either low-paid work or specialised high-paid work, with a huge emphasis on education and lifelong learning.” And because people lie at the heart of corporate purpose, this means that organisations must build a context to innovate and excite them – which, for Gratton, presents a huge opportunity for HR to be positioned as ‘enabler’ and ‘inspirer’.

Even if you’re not, you’ll probably still enjoy a lot of them.(Some background: The Eagles are one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 150 million records – 100 million in the U.S. alone – including 42 million copies of Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and 32 million copies of Hotel California. Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) was
Lately I’ve found myself hooked on the new podcast “StartUp,” which is hosted by NPR alum Alex Blumberg. When I started listening to the series, I expected to hear about Blumberg’s own experience launching and running a company, but the podcast also looks at questions about the greater business landscape outside of startups.
