As an agile coach and consultant I have heard most things around over the years when it comes to the “right” approach to implementing “agile” into organisations or teams. “Start with Scrum” is probably the most used one — also mentioned by me I suppose a number of times. However, this has started to sound a bit squeaky in my ears lately. In the beginning I couldn’t really put my finger on why it annoyed me so much. What’s not to like about Scrum if you want to take your organisation or team into agility? You have short iterations, low time-to-market cycles, reduced number of meetings and your development cycle is closer connected with your core business. Looking in retrospect on what I’ve learned over the years, I think I finally found my answer.
