Agile Transformation is a work of non-fiction in the business genre and was penned by author Scott M. Graffius. Subtitled: “A Brief Story of How an Entertainment Company Developed New Capabilities and Unlocked Business Agility to Thrive in an Era of Rapid Change”, this short narrative work explores the effects of implementing agile strategy and coaching into a business. Whilst it is not in itself a comprehensive introduction to agile transformation, the work does showcase many different practices and techniques of the methodology and how they can be applied to any workforce in order to see effective results. It is a valuable case study for those already interested in agile strategies, which could be used as an advocate for implementation in their own businesses.

Author Scott M. Graffius writes with a first-person narrative that will easily draw his readers into the world of agile thinking, and the style and flow of the writing make for a confident and exemplary voice of guidance throughout the work. Succinct and well organized, the examples are laid out in a logical progression that shows the complete journey of implementation with its many causes and effects, which will surely be useful for any reader who wants to see how the strategy works in action. The format lends itself to quick learning really well, delivering hope, empowerment, and new possibilities to those who might be lost in the ever-changing world of business. Overall, I would recommend Agile Transformation to those already interested in the concept who would like a solid exemplar for their guidance and reference.
