Introducing the Agile Marsupial

Posted by on Mar 11, 2010 in Blog | 0 comments

F or years we have been taught that Agile was all about honesty, visibility, and openness in all that we do. I have taught and do still believe big and visible is the way to go. The trend I have been seeing in enterprise levels of Agile adoption has taken a shift more towards doing Agile in the pouch.

The Agile Runway

Posted by on Nov 3, 2009 in Blog | 0 comments

M any teams and coaches profess that Agile means very little up front planning. In many cases, I do disagree with this statement. We do need a place to take off and land when we are intending to fly through our sprints. The question is has your organization discovered who might be responsible for making certain this runway was in place and operating properly? Who sets the tone of evaluating the experience as part of the discovery process to help determine if the flight pattern is one you wish to take again? Most importantly, who is part of the ground crew making certain the team and project...
