The Agilist’s Guidebook- A Reference for Organizational Agile Transformation, this workbook is for all Agilist who choose to enable organizational agile transformation. Competitive pressure and fundamental changes will remain the hallmark of the business environment. Thus the need for new and upgraded skills will continue. Lifelong learning is not simply an educational concept; it is a business necessity. This workbook has emphasized pragmatic challenges we come across during agile transformation and how we can fortify ourselves to surmount all these challenges. This workbook consists of five distinct areas like Organizational coaching, the overall mindset of the team members, Leadership capability, Building a high-performance team, Organization development (Structure and Culture). These five pillars are five elements of the Panch Bhoota Model. If these five elements are not purified or malfunctions,we become ill. As an organization is not a machine, it is an organism, leaders have to take care of these five elements by learning about them and strengthening these elements so that the organization does not get affected by a foreign threat, much like a virus or a bacteria. The political, economic, social, technological, legal environment can threaten an organizations survival. When the organization is stable in these five elements, it can cope with any challenge thrown by the external environment. This workbook will feature some of the challenges and approaches in handling these areas. This workbook will guide the reader to evaluate their present skills and take action wherever improvement is desired. The author has highlighted many Mindmaps, checklist, thought-provoking questions for the readers to reflect on and take action, and has emphasized many case studies in this book to make the book practical for the reader. The author had shared many theoretical concepts for the reader to do further research in and enhance learning in those areas. This workbook is a compendium means it is a compilation of concise but detailed information about a specific subject, in this case, Organizational Agile transformation.

Agile Readiness is designed to provide guidance to the manager or business leader in establishing a successful environment to enable fast moving agile and lean project methods focused on business systems transformation. Agile and lean offer huge potential as methods for reducing risk and costs, delivering early benefits and ensuring IT projects genuinely deliver the business transformation benefits that they promise at the outset. The conundrum for many organizations is that without a change of organizational culture, agile and lean methods are very unlikely to be adopted successfully in traditional organizations. Thus, the struggle that many (if not most) managers and executives face is not in how agile or lean development works, but in how to make agile and lean methods successful when working beyond software development. Thomas P. Wise and Reuben Daniel provide a clear view of the struggles and remedies. Their text uses simple ground floor experiences to illustrate the practices and behaviors necessary to create highly successful and effective agile and lean business systems transformation teams. In this book the reader will discover organizational strategies that build strong teams, an environment of trust, and project selection and planning strategies to create an environment of enablement in which agile and lean teams thrive.

Laura & ST have been supporting individuals, teams and companies in (agile) change projects for many years. Sometimes this has been very disappointing and frustrating. As a self-therapeutic measure, they began to write short messages in which they satirized or simply quoted their environment. Comments like: "You can do that any way you like, but not like that" or "Testing? We don't do that, it's far too expensive. We implement changes live" or "This is a very good method, but unfortunately it doesn't work for us" or "In the time planning takes, I can also work on something for real" brightened the depressed mood. In the course of time, small drawings were added and the idea for this book was born. To make sure the content is not only negatively connotated, they have described improvement suggestions with each anti-tip.

This short guide to Agile Transformation is for new Agile Coaches and people wanting to understand more about the complexities of Agile Transformation. The enclosed is not theories but real consultancy refined by the experience of working in enterprises with both business and technology leaders and workers. It is aimed at decision makers and to everyone out there who has started or is about to start an Agile Transformation or New Ways of Working Programme. I'm publishing this small book for a number of reasons, partly as a crib sheet for myself since there are so many moving parts in an Agile Transformation and partly to fill in some gaps for people getting involved in Agile Transformation. It is in no way exhaustive, in fact since starting it I realise that I can't possibly put in everything I want to in the time. I hope it helps. Agile Transformation is about accepting that businesses are unique and building that into their transformation DNA. Agile Transformation is focused on freedom, transparency and growth.

Energy Driven Agile Transformation Workbook is for agile coaches looking to create a foundation for coaching within their organization and for individuals who are members of an organization implementing agile and are unsure how their current roles may change. This workbook focuses on an individual's thoughts and how a person's thoughts lead to their feelings. Not being hypersensitive, the questions about feelings are utilized as a gateway to create an action plan. This allows individuals within an organization to move forward from discussion to action items to implement change to gain whatever it is they desire during the agile process. As an agile coach, it is a great way to facilitate the coaching relationship because it allows individuals to come to coaching conversations with topics within the workbook or topics inspired by the workbook. The Energy Leadership Index assessment option that the workbook offers is also a great way to facilitate the coaching relationship by the ability to track an individual's "progress" during the agile coaching process. There is also facilitator guide that can be used to host a two-day workshop for groups to go through the workbook as well, which is highly recommended after seeing success using it within one on one coaching conversations.

Nobody likes to fail especially when it comes to an enterprise-wide change. Failing at Agile Transformation describes the numerous things people do that sabotage an organization's efforts to change. The number of practices you can test out to assist you in your Agile journey are limitless. Unfortunately, the number of counterproductive assaults people perform during the journey are just as limitless. There are countless books, websites and blogs that will describe dozens and even hundreds of different techniques that can help you become Agile. With so many available resources, making this transformation successful must be easy. Right? Wrong! The sad fact is that an organization can employ every single tip and trick out there and still fail at Agile. How can this happen if they do everything they are "supposed" to do? It can happen because shifting in this way is much more than simply changing how you do things. Becoming a living, breathing Agile organization involves changing why you do things. There must be a complete metamorphosis of the company culture. Management structure must change. You cannot simply implement this mindset into your existing structure. Individual roles need to change and responsibilities need to adjust. Some positions become obsolete.Therefore, some good advice is to read as many books and resources as you can about Agile transformation. Educate yourself on all the things people have tried that worked. Familiarize yourself with the Agile terminology and nifty lingo. However, there is also have a word of caution: Do not assume that doing these things will make your organization Agile. Employees can do all the right things but if they are also doing things that are harmful and detrimental to the Agile mindset, the transformation may fail before it has had a chance to thrive. Do not allow that to happen. Save yourself some headaches and spend a couple of hours reading about the lessons learned by Kelly Geyer in her experience as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach.
