With this reward we would like to make a commonly known, that individual influencers are often behind successful agile transformations. These people have risked their necks in order to promote common good – the wellbeing of people and companies, which are results of successful agile transformations. We wanted to make this valued work visible by rewarding those heros and heroins, who often first face the change resistance but who have bravely accepted the challenge. We will grant this first award to a person, who exemplify how you can influence not just in your own organization but have a wider impact promoting business agility and cultural transformation in Finland.

The first Agile influencer award goes to Mirette Kangas. Mirette is an agile influencer, who has greatly forwarded agility at Yle, Finnish broadcasting company. For years, she has put herself into a line for agile mission. She’s an agile pioneer, who has pushed agile culture way forward in her organization. In Yle, development of agile culture is concrete, practical and daily work, not any temporary project. This ensures that agility roots into the culture. Furthermore, Mirette´s work has inspired dozens of companies across industries to the agile corporate culture.


” I am very honored to receive the first Agile Influencer of the Year Award. Working with various networks is part of my work. It is important for me to receive this kind of external validation as it is very important tool for me to validate my impact internally and carry on my daily work.” 


Congratulations Mirette for the great achievements in enhancing agile culture at Yle!
