Lack of Executive buy-in is known to be one the leading causes of failed Agile transformations! But what about another level of management buy-in that can either make or break your agile transformation efforts… Middle management! Based on my experience in large corporate organisations undergoing an agile transformation, I have encountered massive support and buy-in from senior leadership and executives. Yet, still some of these transformations have failed to see the significant improvement in results that there were expecting. Middle management are often overlooked in Agile transformation initiatives, yet they are the people most effected by the change… and therefore the most likely to resist.
