Version One recently released their 11th annual State of Agile Development survey results. This survey asks people why their organizations are trying agile, what methods/tools/processes are they using, and where they’re getting stuck.
Over the last 10 years, the barriers have remained more or less the same:
These barriers are not ‘agile problems’, yet we still cling to our linear change models, and fall into the trap of trying to manage transformations the same way we manage an infrastructure project for moving a bunch of printers.
I recently published an article for Better Software magazine and you can read it on Sticky Minds about how we could look at transformation differently by taking inspiration from how social change happens.
