Five Questions To kick start your Agile Discussion

Agile favors:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.
  • Running software (or prototypes or test campaigns)over comprehensive documentation.
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation.
  • Responding to change over following a plan.

2016-09-22_11-28-05To determine if the environment that you are working in is Agile or just using the name without embracing the framework, take the following test to see

  1. Are you getting the cost right but could benefit from an increased speed-to-market?
  2. Is the project getting bogged down in planning and linear processes?
  3. Is quality suffering?
  4. Are there information silos or barriers to communication across departments, and is this slowing progress or costing too much?
  5. Are your teams unhappy with the final work? Are they feeling like the end-result could have — and should have — been better?

Take your answers and kickstart your next iteration of Implementing Agile.
