Some comments on being Agile in a Waterfall world – being careful treading there anyway is where this author comes from.
But from Kevin Lawver’s comment on the previous post on Waterfall vs Agile & his teams sneak attack at AOL that got the whole company going agile, we need to go for the soapbox after we have proven some success can be delivered – biting the whole agile bullet will then deliver HUGE benefits that a one team approach got for that team.
To make agile scalable across a whole organization there needs to be a major commitment, trainers & coaches can help with the adoption, so can clear direction from Management!
Do you have your Management’s attention or looking for ways to get their attention – do what Kevin suggests in his comment to this post, take into consideration the views expressed in the referenced article above, then see where you need to go from there!
