Why do agile transformations often fail?

A transformation means a fundamental reorientation of a company that affects every single employee. For such a fundamental change, all influencing factors must be taken into account. Almost 70% of all transformation projects fail.

The most important causes of this failure include the lack of vision, mission, strategy & purpose, but also inappropriate mindset, lack of change and project management, lack of communication, and lack of adaptation of processes and structures (McKinsey, 2017).
