All the learning is useless without one thing.....WILLINGNESS

A very short post today.....
All the blogs, courses, conferences, manuals, videos, presentations, conversation, guidance and training about Agile are all useless without one thing....
WILLINGNESS

Webster's defines Willingness as "The quality or state of being willingfree choice or consent of the willfreedom from reluctancereadiness of the mind to door forbear." or "cheerful compliance"


WILLINGNESS seems to be directly related to answering one question.... WHY?


Without addressing WILLINGNESS to Learn, Change, Adopt, Learn or even Listen, it is all pointless noise.  


Ignoring Willingness is foolish (a.k.a. Change Management)
