Does Agile Change Management Thinking?

David Joyce asks wheher Agile, Lean, and Kanban change management thinking? The answer is no, not really! Lack of management understanding has actually hindered Agile to become as successful as it could have been. For some reason management doesn’t seem to get it. People have told David that “managers still want us to be seen as busy all the time”, or “management has promised it will be delivered on a certain date without consulting us”. David’s conclusion is that it’s the underlying assumptions about the design and the management of the work that need to be changed. I agree.
