Foster organizational learning

The concept of self-organized teams shows us that agile tackles the fragilities of older, prescriptive methodologies with more discipline, not less. And as agile is extended through the enterprise, discipline must be extended as well. Give your teams freedom, but make sure they are trained and leverage validated methods and tools. This fine balance between autonomy at the team level and integration at the organizational level is essential for success. You must also build communities of practice, establish collaboration tools for globally distributed teams and always source and provide feedback.

Propelled by the resounding success of agile on a smaller scale, large global enterprises are increasingly trying to tap the power of agile across distributed teams and complex initiatives. However, while agile works well in the nimble setting of smaller teams and projects, finding the right recipe to make it work across the large-scale, complex enterprise environment is a tough order.  There are many challenges and the chance of failure looms large.

In this slideshow, CI&T’s Felipe Brito walks through five critical steps to harness the potential of these self-sufficient teams to tackle bigger problems across the enterprise. It may be easier said than done, but agile can drive innovation and streamline the development process in a complex enterprise environment. While the agile manifesto is a great starting point, enterprises need to extend the manifesto horizons, assess the core business challenge, and create organizational momentum to solve that challenge.
