Why Isn’t Agile Working? – Hacker Noon


95 bookmarks. First posted by hoothootprod october 2017.


To “be Agile”, you’ll need to spend a good deal of money and energy on:
* Doing the work that actually matters (benefits). Doing less.
* Automation, tooling, deployment pipeline, feature flags, etc. (DevOps)
* Changing your management culture
* Adjusting how you fund initiatives. Shift to incremental, mission based funding vs. funding projects
* Allocating resources to manage complexity (regular refactoring and re-architecting)
* Mapping value streams, and treating your business a service ecology
* A fresh look at shared services

RT : Why isn’t Agile working? Companies "doing Agile" instead of "being Agile" and failing to recognise the difference.

Some very satisfying drawings and explanations about how much of work is _waiting_ and _unplanned_.

Which brings me to Agile. Agile is worthless unless it serves as a catalyst for continuous improvement. Scrum and SAFe are worthless unless they serve as a catalyst for continuous improvement. Why? Because the factors that are slowing you down, are only partially due to whether you are sprinting, writing user stories, and doing biweekly demos. I’d argue those things are relatively minor (once you wrap your head around the idea of incrementally lowering risk).

To “be Agile”, you’ll need to spend a good deal of money and energy on:

Doing the work that actually matters (benefits). Doing less.
Automation, tooling, deployment pipeline, feature flags, etc. (DevOps)
Changing your management culture
Adjusting how you fund initiatives. Shift to incremental, mission based funding vs. funding projects
Allocating resources to manage complexity (regular refactoring and re-architecting)
Mapping value streams, and treating your business a service ecology
A fresh look at shared services

There’s no silver bullet. You have to do the work. Beware of anyone who says otherwise.
