Agile Leadership – what is that supposed to mean? If you ask a leader or manager today, the claim to having been agile ever since. Particularly corporate leaders like the idea of being able to deliver more in less time, while being able to influence the scope. This was the promise of „Agile“, after all? The „Manifesto for Agile Software Development“ might have sounded revolutionary 15 years ago. Nowadays, managers and consultancies have „adopted“ the topic. Sometimes they twist the idea, proposing „agile“ approaches that are quite opposite to the original ideas, values and principles.
