Evaluating Executive Support and Team Willingness
Two important criteria for a successful agile implementation are support from your top executive and willingness to apply Agile by the team. By “executive,” I mean your most senior manager within the scope of deployment. If you are looking to initiate an agile enterprise change, then you need top-level executive sponsorship and management support for the transformation. Because moving to an agile culture represents a significant change for the teams, it is important to have team members willing to make the changes for an effective transition.
