Editor's Notes

  • The MANAGERS and BAs are sent on TRAINING and CONFERENCES
    They change their job titles to SCRUM MASTER and PRODUCT OWNER
    They create PLANS using “STORIES” on POST-IT notes and organised into SPRINTS
    But no-one remembers to help the DEVELOPERS to change too
  • The devs have AT LEAST as much to learn and change
    In order to create a working product INCREMENT EVERY TWO WEEKS
    They need to know how to...
  • It's a long list
    None of these is easy
    Most of these skills are counter-intuitive
  • Agile methods place working software at the centre
    Everything else should be subordinate
    Many “agile” transformations stop with
    Stand-ups
    Post-its on a wall
    3 amigos
    If you focus on measuring ROI or management, you miss out on the biggest throughput boost...
  • ..which is helping your DEVs with this huge paradigm shift
    You may get SOME throughput improvement by moving to more frequent releases, but..
  • ...if your devs still do these
    Your “agile” will never fly
    Many devs only know how to work this way
    Many think of the XP PRACTICES as COUNTER INTUITIVE
    So next time you implement agile, remember it's all about...
  • Without that you would have NOTHING TO MANAGE
    Don't just train your managers and BAs...
  • Find someone who can mentor your devs for at least the first 6 months
    Because if you don't, BDUF will DERAIL your “agile”
