Competitive pressure and fundamental changes will remain the hallmark of the business environment. Thus the need for new and upgraded skills will continue. Lifelong learning is not simply an educational concept; it is a business necessity. The Agilist Guidebook has emphasized pragmatic challenges we come across during agile transformation and how we can fortify ourselves to surmount all these challenges. This workbook consists of five distinct areas like Organizational coaching, the overall mindset of the team members, Leadership capability, Building a high-performance team, Organization development (Structure and Culture). These five pillars are five elements of the Panch Bhoota Model. If these five elements are not purified or malfunctions,we become ill. As an organization is not a machine, it is an organism, leaders have to take care of these five elements by learning about them and strengthening these elements so that the organization does not get affected by a foreign threat, much like a virus or a bacteria. The political, economic, social, technological, legal environment can threaten an organizations survival. When the organization is stable in these five elements, it can cope with any challenge thrown by the external environment. This workbook will feature some of the challenges and approaches in handling these areas.
