A bank decided that it wants to implement agile, so it hired a few agile coaches to help throughout the journey.
However the bank has fixed deadlines (in the next 6-12 months) that aren't going anywhere, because if they do, they could jeopardize the bank's position, and it would cost a lot of money from failing to meet contracts all over the place.
When managers were highlighted of this risk, their reply was that they want both: agile transformation and achieved deadlines, slowly but surely, and that they don't want to do either full agile in one go or drop the transformation and just meet the deadlines.
What would you consult the management team of this bank to do? And what would you consult the coaches to do when facing such a situation?
