Attaining and sustaining organizational agility isn’t merely a matter of following a set of steps and you’re done. As Stephanie Ockerman puts it, “Organizational Agility: It’s Not a Sprint, It’s a Marathon”. Stephanie theorizes that organizational agility starts with sustainable teams–and that doesn’t happen overnight. Stephanie is interested in how effective teams are, the quality of their product, how innovative they are, and even turnover rate. “If people aren’t happy in the environment they’re in, they’re going to leave.” She is a strong advocate for looking for ways to set Agile teams up for success: for example, what do they need to be their best, to collaborate, to build trust, and to feel fulfillment in their everyday work.
