Define and Communicate the Mission and Vision

Align the Transformation
  • Michael Nir


Consider the insurance company that started on the path of lean startup and put forth a vision of a complete lean agile transformation. When middle management had to articulate requirements for a new policy administration system, they reverted to recreating the system already in place: a legacy system that was slow, often requiring manual processes, and in no way supported the transformational vision. Later in this chapter I share the concept of an agile open space to create, refine, and communicate a vision among many participants; I learned the hard way that vision sessions that occur in an offsite and include a small group of senior stakeholders rarely succeed.
