Agile Is Mindset – Now What?

Agile has become a kind of commodity. Almost all companies – also from industry sectors, that did traditionally not have a high affinity to agility – have started to move.

During the past 1-2 years we can observe how agile is more and more industrialized via well-defined ways-of-working frameworks. A side-effect of this is, that these mostly address process and structural aspects while the mindset part of agility doesn’t have the same level of focus. This has triggered quite some debates, one of them being a panel discussion at Agile Europe 2016 and an infoQ interview at Agile 2016 with Steve Denning and representatives from several companies and consultants.

Also the Agile Alliance’s “Supporting Agile Adoption” initiative was part of these events and is dealing with this phenomenon.

In this workshop several members of this Agile Alliance initiative are looking for your experiences and insights to discuss and work with you on how we could help companies focussing on the necessary agile mindset shift.


We will together identify thepatterns behind (potentially) successful approaches. We will summarize the result and publish it via the Agile Alliance. So this is your chance to share your insights to this area and help advancing the agile mindset adoption across the industry.
