Lead Agile Transformations that Scale and Succeed across the Entire Organization

Most organizational leaders know agility is paramount to survival in a world of unprecedented volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). This is why so many keep attempting Agile transformations even after previous initiatives have failed. But the truth is, both organizations and leaders need new ways of thinking--they need to upgrade their organizational “operating system.”

Built on the proven Integral Agile Transformation Framework™ (IATF), Agile Transformation offers a fresh perspective and systemic approach that can operate on all levels, from individual to enterprise. Learn how to use IATF to combine what you know subjectively (“heart”) with what you can measure objectively (“data”). Even if you are already using leadership or culture models, scaled frameworks, or other techniques, IATF helps you place them in context, overcome their limitations, and gain more value from them. As it has in many other organizations, IATF can help you become an authentic Transformational Leader and finally build an organization that is truly Agile.

  • Gain crucial new perspective for leading your Agile transformation: insight into your world, organization, work, and yourself
  • Understand what your current Agile methods do and don't do, how they interact or conflict, and where you need something more
  • Structure existing models and frameworks into an understandable meta-framework
  • Master a unified and practical system for mapping what's going on and what needs to change
  • Discover practical ways to successfully lead both human and organizational aspects of change

MEDIA REVIEWS

“ Agile Transformation is a wonderful, very readable, and very important book. What makes virtually all other books on transformation, leadership, and business so inadequate is their partial, incomplete, and non-inclusive character. This is exactly the inadequacy handled by Agile Transformation through the use of Integral metatheory, a systemic framework built to be as comprehensive as possible. Thus, Agile Transformation is as inclusive as can be, and that is what makes this book so incredibly important. So if you are engaged in a transformation, I strongly recommend that you not continue to be fractured and broken in your own approach, but step up to the wholeness and completeness of Agile Transformation.” —Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision “This book does not pull its punches. From the first page to the last, the Agile Transformation operating system works the simple and core truth about transforming an organization—it depends on you being transformed. There will be no Agile organizational transformation otherwise. There is much in this book that will help you learn about how to implement a successful Agile Transformation, but it is all for naught if you don't embody and lead the change. You are the vessel. It won't change unless you do. If you're serious about having your Agile Transformation succeed, read this book.” —Bob Anderson, chairman, The Leadership Circle “It's difficult to keep your focus sharp while broadening your perspective, but that is what Michele and Michael have pulled off in their new book on leading Agile Transformation. Impressively succinct, they provide straightforward tools and essential advice that will be useful for all leaders of transformation initiatives. So how did they do it? Well, for one thing, rather than positioning traditional and Agile-inspired management viewpoints as locked in combat, as many of their predecessors have done, they show how they are equally important, complementary features of a single unifying framework. Just as important, they know what is imperative, what to simplify, and what to ignore, the kind of knowledge that can only be distilled from decades of experience.” —Charlie Rudd, chairman and CEO, SolutionsIQ, an Accenture company “This is a must-read for any leader embarking on or in the midst of an Agile Transformation. Michele Madore and Michael Spayd's integral approach provides organizations with tremendous insights into how to overcome the pitfalls of process-centric transformations that are all too common. They have done a brilliant job of making clear, relatable, and actionable what many see as the most nebulous aspects of leading transformation.” —Shannon Ewan, managing director, ICAgile “Michele and Michael have written a beautiful book about change, intertwining their in-depth knowledge and vast experience with Agile Transformations. It gave me a vocabulary and understanding of the change territory, so now I have a way to navigate, too, and at the same time, it has nudged me gently to start exploring the same and go for my own development journey.” —Zvonimir Durcevic, enterprise Agile coach
