In 2001, the Agile Manifesto was created and along with it, a movement for a better way to build software. Since then over 40 methods, tools, frameworks and more have been created as the software world learned that 4 values and 12 principles alone were not enough.

16 years later, and some feel that we need to take Agile back from the bureaucratic organizations. For every movement, there is a counter-movement and this week’s podcast features Ryan Lockard of Agile Uprising. Our topics include:

  • how Agile Uprising came to be
  • how the ‘take agile back’ movement compares to the original agile movement
  • is change resistance a thing?
  • becoming too attached to the change as a change agent
  • focusing on meaningful change over models and process

I began my career as a web developer when Cold Fusion roamed the earth. Over the following years, I moved into management, Agile Coaching and consulting. The bumps and bruises I collected along the way helped me realize that helping organizations adopt Agile practices was less about the practices, and all about change.
In 2008 I attended an experiential learning conference (AYE) about how people experience change and since then, I’ve been writing, and speaking, all over the world about helping organizations discover more effective practices for managing organizational change.
