What is Agile Leadership?

Agile leadership is characterised by a continuously flexible approach. The leader adjusts and reacts to their progress and circumstances throughout the project. The type of leadership varies per situation and the team and team leader are responsible for working out how to approach different situations.


This way of working is known for being less 'labour intensive' than more traditional methods as the speed of working means that there is less need for long meetings and paperwork that would have taken up extra time previously.


When working in an agile way, particular attention is paid to:


  • Taking swift and decisive action
  • Focusing on the goal at all times
  • Critical thinking and evaluation


Within #Agile, the primary job of an #Agile #Leader is to encourage and empower #teams. This demands that team members are granted sufficient personal #responsibility, #accountability and #authority to deliver.            Rama Krishna
