Agile Leadership - a Mind set, not a Tool set

Man­agers, projects and entire orga­ni­za­tions are now sup­posed to become agile. Many con­cepts for man­ag­ing an orga­ni­za­tion have come and gone, but Agile Lead­er­ship” not only seems to hold its ground, but even gain in pop­u­lar­i­ty. What are the dri­ving fac­tors?
