Executives (alone) Can't Make Agile Work

Executives (alone) Can't Make Agile Work | Agile | Scoop.it

In the present day, Agile is a mainstream idea. Now formally authorized leadership- management- is leading the charge. now Agile is being pushed on teams, without their consent. By authority. Professional “agile coaches” seal the fate of the teams, by acting as management’s proxy, force-feeding training and “inflicting help” on teams, teams that never, ever consented…because no one asked them in the 1st place.

 

Here are some quotes ( Martin Fowler):

*  “Imposing a process on a team is completely opposed to the principles of agile software, and has been since its inception.”

 

*  “Imposing an agile process from the outside strips the team of the self-determination which is at the heart of agile thinking.”

 

*  “Not just should a team choose their own process, the team should be control of how that process evolves.”

 

*  “…I’d rather have a team work in a non-agile manner they chose themselves than have my favorite agile practices imposed upon them.”

Toujours pertinent. Seule l'utilisation de nouvelles techniques LEAN et Agile plus facilitantes s'est ajoutée à ma pratique et à mes formations. L'état d'esprit est resté le même. Une gestion de projet basée sur la gestion des attentes et des perceptions, sur la collaboration et sur les humains et la maximisation des bénéfices pour tous

CEOs: It Takes a Team to be Agile

CEOs: It Takes a Team to be Agile | Agile | Scoop.it

"CEOs are constantly asking their global CIOs to be increasingly responsive and to get ever-more stuff done faster. Call it agile, call it organized chaos if you like, but this challenge is not new; how to work faster, smarter, better. What is new is that you can not ask one part of the organization to be agile, the IT organization, and then not have the rest of organization act in the same manner. This was what several of the CIOs noted. They know their IT organization can become agile."

Claude Emond's curator insight, January 22, 2014 2:44 PM

Pour ceux qui jouent le rôle de «Product Owner», porteur de ballon, propriétaire, client ou sponsor de projet GÉRÉ EN MODE AGILE OU NON. Même si vos projets ne sont pas des projets «logiciels» en mode agile, vous pouvez apprendre beaucoup sur votre rôle,vos devoirs et vos droits en projet. Pas besoin d'être d'accord avec tout ce qui est là dedans (inspiré de la méthode SCRUM) pour y apprendre des choses très pertinentes et essentielles à votre succès. Il n'y a pas grands ouvrages en français qui parle de ce rôle, alors pourquoi ne pas partir de là. En plus vous pouvez consulter un extrait ici: http://thierrycros.net/public/livreII/agile-expression-de-besoins-sample-preview.pdf avant d'acheter. Je n'ai pas de cote sur la vente de ce livre; je veux juste que vous sachiez c'est quoi votre job, pour le bien des projets, de ceux qui payent pour et de ceux qui les réalisent avec et pour vous. :)

In countries with high power indices, it’s more difficult for people in less powerful positions to talk to people in more powerful positions. A transition to agile exposes this power differential, which can be uncomfortable or intimidating.
