Agile leadership consultant Todd Little shares with Agile Amped the challenges he’s seen in leadership as well as how to grow Agile across the organization. The major challenge impeding widespread adoption of Agile in an enterprise is the fact that business and IT don’t have a shared language to facilitate communication and collaboration. In his experience Todd thinks that business and leadership are interested in the gains of agility but then they inadvertently create structures that run counter to this goal. Todd advocates strongly for moving toward forming partnerships, shared ownership, agreeing on a shared language, and identifying constraints and costs associated with change.
