"If only they would stop changing their minds..."
"Life would be so much easier if things were predictable. We could work out exactly what was needed and then decide the most efficient way to deliver it".
"Please can we go back to the good old days and do things properly?"
If your team are thinking and speaking like this you are not alone. However, the pace of change is predicted to increase instead and this will become the experience for most of us.
Traditional approaches adopt "Change Management" which usually translates into "Change Prevention" an approach that views change as an enemy to be stamped on.
Agile allows us to change the way we work so that we view change not as an enemy to be fought but learning, telling us about a better product or a more realistic view of our capabilities. We need to change the way we work so we ensure our customers thrive in a changing world.
