Adopting agile can cause quite a lot of turmoil depending on how organisations are setup. It’s something some experts in cultural transformation call Liminality, the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that happens in the middle stage of a ritual. This process, as we know, causes fear, panic, depression and even some some neuroses.
As Coaches or anyone in a position to coach, we want to help everyone transition this phase without much of those issues, so we need to understand what causes liminality and how to work in the liminal space.
