The very word Agile (with a capital A) was first used in the 1994 book "Agile Competitors and Virtual Organizations." Agile, the authors argue, exacts a cost on an organization: "It requires major changes in organization, management philosophy, and operations."
In our modern moment Agile and Scrum are tossed around by leaders as the newest management fad. What leadership has to recognize is that this requires not only changes in their organizations, but changes in themselves. The world of today is undergoing a rapid transition from one phase to another, and those leaders who cannot fundamentally shift how they view the world, their companies, and the way they think about work itself simply won't make it. As one evolutionist put it in 1964, "It is not the strongest species that survives, or the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."
