Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders
In becoming an Agile and DevOps organization, it is broadly recognized that autonomous teams shape the fundamentals of true business agility. Therefore, a great deal of focus is given to fostering team maturity by measuring the subsequent aspects of Agile and DevOps within the teams. There is one key element often overlooked: Leadership.
The roles for management have changed fundamentally, but they are still essential to guiding the enterprise towards the holy grail: A better, faster, and cheaper response to changing circumstances than your competitors. Therefore, leadership is the differentiator for organizations to effectively organize, and improve the delivery of customer value on a sound economic basis.
As Sumantra Ghosal would say, the challenge is to create the right ‘smell of the place’.
