Q: Does Agile Help in a Crisis?


Q: Does Agile Help in a Crisis?

Authors Sarah Elk, Steve Berez and Darrell Rigby respond: Covid-19 has shown the value of agile management in challenging moments. As they deal with the fallout of Covid-19, many companies are naturally falling into agile practices and principles. Among them: daily meetings, small teams formed to attack problems, and a willingness to test and learn. Executives feel energized by the results and have the opportunity to systematize today’s haphazard version of agile into something that can help their companies in the long term.
