Why Agile Isn't Working: Bringing Common Sense to Agile Principles

Why Agile Isn't Working: Bringing Common Sense to Agile Principles | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
Agile promises many things, but the reality in the field is often very far from the expectations. Is it agile we need--or an agile way of thinking?
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

An interesting examination of agile and some issues that might be encountered, however, the author while promoting the idea of "agile thinking" never specifies what agile thinking is or how to incorporate this approach into sequential project management. Many Web Project Managers are experimenting with a blended approach of sequential and agile thinking - if you are one, you will find this article of interest. If you are using Agile and encountering some of the problems mentioned in the article, you might gain some ideas on how to deal with these issues in your next product development.

Shane Diffily
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

This is a question I get asked a lot in my classes. I highly recommend this comprehensive article. Most of the Web teams I have encountered are understaffed for the type of projects they are working on. Creating an appropriate size teams often solves many problems. You don't want a bloated organization, but if your team is woefully understaffed you are likely to lose the good people you do have.

4 Tips for Acing a Tough Conversation

4 Tips for Acing a Tough Conversation | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
When members of your team are being counterproductive, staging an intervention can be tough. Here's how to get the result you want.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

These tips are especially valuable when team members start to form cliques and try to gang up against one another. If none of these tips work, then the Web Project Manager has to set up a program to work with an individual who is causing the issues. However, beware. Sometimes there is a passive/agressive team member who is behind the animosity toward a fellow team member with poor social skills but is more the victim than the problem. Identify the true disruptive individual and work with them to try and turn things around. Some people make themselves feel important by attacking others and the Web Project Manager isn't a therapist. If all else fails, do your team a favor and terminate the uncooperative and disruptive person.
