Cargo Cult Agile | exotribe

by greut, 1 comment (via)

After all, a cargo cult shop is imitating what they have seen about agile. However, like waterfall proponents, cargo cult agile shops are led by people who have looked at pictures of agile models, "read" agile books, or "learned" agile development from PowerPoint presentations. Perhaps there are a number of developers who know agile, but they may not be able to move the company towards agility in the face of generations of managers and developers who have been indoctrinated by DoD-2167.

by greut, 3 comments

If we had to bet our lives on the continued success and adaptability of any single company (...), we would place that bet on 3M. Using 3M as a blueprint for evolutionary progress at its best, here are five basic lessons (...).

  1. Give it a try - and quick!
  2. Accept that mistakes will be made.
  3. Take small steps.
  4. Give people the room they need.
  5. Mechanisms--build that ticking clock
