About the book

LONGLISTED: CMI Management Book of the Year 2020 - Technology and Patterns at Work Transformed Category

Traditional organizational structures and cultures are no longer fit for purpose in a digitally empowered world. The number of new and disruptive technologies is increasing, the speed of change shows no sign of slowing down and business leaders and organization development practitioners need to act urgently to enable their companies to succeed in the digital age.

Agile Transformation is the much-needed guide to achieving this success. Packed full of practical advice, this book covers everything: why new operating models are needed, how to apply agile principles at scale, leveraging digital-native processes and why change managers need to think big but start small.

Agile Transformation also looks at how to build and engage high-performing teams for change, how to tackle the employee mindset that can hinder agile adoption and why developing an agile business is not a reason to fail to plan.

There is also guidance on how to develop fast and focused high-velocity decision making, build momentum for change, and ensure that leadership behaviours and organizational culture catalyze true organizational agility. Featuring case studies from organizations including Amazon, Netflix and Vodafone, this book is crucial reading for businesses wanting to effectively compete in the new world of work.
