Bio - Mark Buchan
I am the Managing Director of the Agile Leader Ltd, a seasoned Change Agent and Agile trouble-shooter, with over 20 years’ experience in delivering transformative change and helping turn around failing Agile Transformations. I combine my technical background with my extensive knowledge of organisational development and psychology, to provide a unique and innovative approach to Agile Transformation.
I have also been a trusted advisor to the Agile Business Consortium, which including helping them to develop their “Nine Principles of Agile Leadership” (ABC) (2017).
Drawing on all my years working in the Agile space, I recently launched my first book (May 2019): “Leader’s, it’s not how you finish but how you start: A radical new strategy for successful Agile Transformations revealed”. In it, I identify the five mistakes that are common in EVERY failing transformation and I explain what needs to be done to create “Genuine Agile Transformation”. Instead of following prescriptions and recipes, and the conventional approach to Agile Transformations provided by large consulting houses, I suggest following a radical, new strategy that is genuinely tailored to the individual organisation. You can buy my book here.
Are you considering an Agile Transformation for your organisation and want to avoid the mistakes others have made in the past and save your company vast sums of money? If so, then contact me today.
Equally, if your organisation is already in the process of an Agile Transformation but it is failing, then contact me now to arrange an Agile Transformation “trouble-shooting” session, or “Agile Health check” to get your transformation back on track.
I am passionate about what Agile can do to help leaders make meaningful changes in their organisation and I speak passionately on this subject.
