Transformational Leadership for Business Agility - AgileDC 2018


Published on

Presented by Sanjiv Augustine and Bob Payne of LitheSpeed, AgileDC 2018.

Despite thinking that organizations are slow to innovate, innovation actually abounds at many companies. Kodak, DEC, and Xerox did not fail due to lack of new, cutting-edge innovation; they failed because their organizations were tuned to their traditional markets, and a failure to change their business models and organizations led to their eventual disruption.

The key to achieving business agility lies in leadership that transforms organizations. Transformational leaders succeed by changing the system, leading with purpose, and steering from the edges. They own their responsibility and boldly lead their organizations into the future. As leaders, we can accelerate this evolution by enabling true self-management and team-based governance.

Join Bob and Sanjiv to learn how leaders can transform organizations with a flatter organization structure, work anywhere flexibility, participatory profit sharing, and delegated hiring and firing. Explore the agile leadership journey needed for true business agility.

  31. 31. The Bottom Line– Transformational Leadership 34 • How individuals and teams work is a second-order effect, and of somewhat lesser importance. • How individuals and teams come together to deliver value in organizations is a first-order effect. • Individual teams’ value is hemmed by the coordination and integration of their work across tens and sometimes hundreds of people. • Only transformational leadership can solve these inefficiencies.
