Our latest podcast is a conversation with Deepti Jain and Tathagat Varma, who presented a curated report at Agile 2019. As you listen in, you’ll hear how these two thought leaders came to organize a one-day summit on the state of Agile transformation in India. At that summit they gathered the experiences and wisdom of 30 Agile change agents on challenges they’ve encountered initiating Agile adoption, enabling, and sustaining Agile transformations. One clear message that comes through when talking with them and reading their report is that Agile transformations aren’t likely stick if you simply focus on Agile practices. Global companies and organizations need to recognize cultural differences between India and other countries around the world. They also need to pay attention to mindset, consistent leadership, and possible structural changes that would enable and support more successful transformations. The next step for Deepti and TV is to hold a second Change Agent Summit this October in Bangalore. They also hope to inspire other change Agents and leaders in India and continue to grow and share the knowledge about Agile adoption and Agile transformation efforts in India.
