Episode 213 – Why Agile Isn’t A Thing

by | Jun 6, 2022 | Podcast

Sorry to disappoint, but agile isn’t a thing.

-We treat it like a program you install or a product you buy.

-We expect that there is magic in the arrangement of principles and practices.

-We expect this to make things somehow ‘better’

-Worse, we sell it (or allow it to be sold) as though it will

-As a result, we fail to focus on the attitudes and practices that bring about victory

-Sadly, those practices still require hard work, risk and courage

-We focus instead on detailed conversations that don’t drive results

-Agile never evolves

-Agile will eventually go extinct.

-The spoils go to those who see.  Those who question and learn.
