Becoming an agile organisation is an incremental process. There is no point you say to yourself, "yesterday we weren't agile, but today we are. Success!".

The journey be become an agile organisation can be formal, through a transformation program, or informal, through ad-hoc changes addressing problem areas. Regardless of the mechanism, your agile journey begins with a set of clear organisational goals. What is your organisation trying to achieve by becoming agile?
