The Context Leadership Model shown below is a model that I have written about in an Agile2004 Experience Report, IEEE Software and in the book “Stand Back and Deliver: Accelerating Business Agility” (Free Chapter or Amazon) The following post is a short section extracted from my Agile2012 Experience Report.
Over the years I have used the model to look at projects based on the degree of uncertainty and complexity.
- Complexity includes project composition such as team size, geographic distribution and team maturity.
Uncertainty includes both market and technical uncertainty.
