How do you stay agile in a growing organization?

1. MAKE QUICK, BUT THOUGHTFUL DECISIONS
This is the fundamental thing that allows startups to be competitive against dominant players in a market: It is using your resources more efficiently and moving faster than anyone else.

2. HIRE THE RIGHT PEOPLE
Hire the right people who truly understand the value of Agile ways of working.

3. KEEP TEAMS SMALL AND FOCUSED
Team members desperately want to be contributing meaningful changes on time and a reduction in scope lets them focus again on a more specific cross-section of the product, shifting attention away from the larger team discussions that may not be specific to a product area.

4. ALLOW TEAMS TO EXPERIMENT WITH THEIR OWN PROCESSES
Teams may have some standardization like release cadence and some labels on deliverables, but should be free to do their own thing.

5. MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS ON THE SAME PAGE
Everyone involved should have the same expectations and common understanding of “staying Agile” or “becoming Agile” and understand the necessary steps that need to be taken toward being an Agile organization.
