Connecting the Dots—How and Why Leaders and Management Must Lead Their Agile Transformations

Often leadership gives the edict to their organizations to "Go agile," but why is leadership and management the cause of the top five problems with agile adoptions (per 10 years of Version One's State of Agile survey)?
