This book is about how you can use your three greatest assets as a change agent: your eyes, ears, and brain.

Through a mix of practical tips, and inspirational stories, I’ll guide you through how to translate the agile manifesto away from a software-focus, and toward a change-focus.

Implementing Agile is a huge organizational change, and it’s difficult. Today’s organizations are complex adaptive systems that will react in unpredictable ways when change is introduced. Some consider Agile as processes and tools while others consider Agile as a mindset.

Organizations are far too complex to assume one path to agility is the right path for everyone.

In this video Jason will show you a 4 step model that will help you shape your path to business agility. In addition, this video talks about how to leverage the Lean Startup method even if your organization is not a startup.
