drunkenpm radio EP 2 - BiModal! with Steve Elliott and Dennis Stevens

In this podcast is I got to dig into the topic of Bimodal with two guys who are deeply knowledgeable about both the traditional and the Agile space. If you aren’t familiar with Bimodal yet, you definitely want to check this out because it is poised to have a massive impact on how organizations introduce and work with Agile. And if you are already up to speed on bimodal, there is a good chance some of the discussion in this podcast is going to challenge what you know on this topic.

Getting Ready For Organizational Agility

Organizational Agility is an emerging area that Project Management Professionals need to become aware of. At its core it is about helping companies gain (retain) their competitive advantage by being able to see and respond to changing demands in the market quicker than their competitors. If you are 10 guys in a garage working on a startup, drastic changes to your business model are kind of par for the course. If, however, you happen to work at a Fortune 100 company that has been around for 50+ years and has to deal with a variety of oversight and compliance… not so much with the easy.

Because it is still evolving, defining Organizational Agility can become troublesome as well.  Ask ten people and you’ll get 10 completely different definitions. What you are likely to find are similarities in the desired outcomes. If you are getting up to speed on Organizational Agility or your company is beginning efforts to move in that direction, here are three things to consider…

Organizational Agility is NOT Agile and you cannot have Organizational Agility without Agile

Trying to establish Organizational Agility in your company without adopting Agile would be a little like trying to win a marathon without learning to run. If your company wants to have the ability to react and respond quickly, making changes as they inspect and adapt every step of the way towards delivery, you are going to need to develop your organization’s capacity to work in an Agile environment.

Organizational Agility is not Lean Startup but you really need Lean Startup if you are going to develop Organizational Agility

If you are not already familiar with Lean Startup… stop reading this article and go fix that. NOW! The capabilities that come with that type of approach are now recognized as mission critical and they are at the core of developing the capacity for Organizational Agility. Putting them into play at the Enterprise level, establishing Innovation Centers, and creating a disruptive culture of experimentation and innovation is a very hot ticket right now. Unfortunately, the desire to develop that and the practical reality of doing so while still maintaining current position, revenue, etc. etc. etc. presents some significant challenges.

For the past 10-15 years, organizations have been working on implementing Agile and as this has spread into the Enterprise, it has become apparent that for many larger, long standing organizations, the adoption of Agile is going to take several years and in many cases, multiple attempts.

When those same organizations begin moving towards establishing a culture of disruptive innovation, fostering it in small groups, and then spreading it within the Enterprise, the tremendous dissonance created by all these changes is going to have a massive impact. Organizations are going to need a way to cope with the changes.

The Invaluable Capacity for Change

What is described above represents a complete revolution to the way most of the larger, older companies do business. The transition is going to be harder than any change most these companies have experienced before and there is very little chance they’ll be able to avoid it and remain competitive.

If you are involved with the management of work at the project, program, or portfolio level, you are going to be impacted by the introduction of Organizational Agility. If you want to add value for your company, one of the best things you can do is focus on helping the organization learn to adapt and change. The introduction of Agile and Lean Innovation are far more than just processes or workflows. They each introduce cultural and value system changes that will impact every level of the organization like a virus. And the Enterprise, like any existing organism, will fight as best it can to kill off the virus, even if the virus is critical to its survival. You need to become knowledgeable and practiced in the dark arts of organizational change if you are going to help shepherd in the transition.

So, if you are a PM Professional and you want to get ready for Organizational Agility:

  1. Become familiar with Agile. Remember that this is a tactical necessity for Organizational Agility, but Agile is never an end state we are trying to reach.
  2. Become familiar with the Lean Startup and learn all you can about how it is being applied in the Enterprise. This is an emerging area, so it may require deep and continued research.
  3. Become an Organizational Change Ninja. You have a valuable role to play in helping your company go through a massive change in how they approach and manage work.
