Blog banner 7 success factors for starting with agile in your team

A lot of teams are starting their Agile transformation journey this year. The question in most people’s mind is “where do we start?”.


We always encourage teams and people to try Agile practices, methods and skills in their everyday life, without thinking they have to change everything, to start with Agile. Practices such as Kanban to visualise work or retrospectives to reflect and improve together are super valuable for any team!

Starting a real agile team, where you want Agile to be the operating model, requires a bit more action. In our recent blog you can read our seven recommendations for adopting Agile in a team “for real”:

  • A professional training where the trainer speaks the learner’s language
  • Application during the training
  • Co-creation about where to start and how to adopt
  • Agile coaching for the teams at the start
  • Senior stakeholders need to understand Agility
  • Prioritise! Stop starting, start finishing
  • Allocate capacity to the Agile teamwork

Agility is simple to understand, but hard to master. We’re supporting HR teams, business teams, units and companies to take steps towards agility, and lovin’ it! Please read our blog for more (5 min read).
