The key to agile is collaboration by Jean Tabaka. Disciplined collaboration across agile teams leads to greater harmony throughout your organisation and speeds your ability to deliver innovation in today’s market. How do you make the most effective decisions when reacting to market pressures? When you’re agile, the answer is collaboration. Because it’s only through collaboration that we can make truly effective, sustainable decisions driven by collective organisational knowledge. It’s the ability for Agile teams to make their own decisions about their work, their abilities, and their commitments together, instead of relying on a single person to make those decisions. By bringing these teams together, they can dig out the important information that may be hidden in their organization’s vaults. Of course, collaboration doesn’t belong solely to the agile environment—but it is more critical to Agile success. That’s because collaboration feeds transparency, which creates focus, and most importantly, alignment. And alignment is essential for Agile teams, giving them the ability to prioritize actions that consistently deliver the highest value.
