Fit-for-Purpose Agility: There Is No “One True Agile”

Fit-for-Purpose Agility: There Is No “One True Agile” | Articles for project management and agile project management | Scoop.it
Agile proponents need to recognize that agility itself is materially different when applied in different environments and that while the core practices and values are fairly portable, the way that they fit together ends up being remarkably different. The best agility is one that is “fit for purpose.” That purpose is defined by the strategy of the business unit or company, or even by the behaviors of the market category into which the company is selling. Positioning and posturing about which is more important or “the right thing” fails to serve the community at large and actively misleads companies attempting to improve. There is little doubt that agility and its various outcomes will be absolutely necessary for companies that want to be successful in the future.

How to measure technical debt

How to measure technical debt | Articles for project management and agile project management | Scoop.it
In my years as a software engineer I was always drawn to the shiny new things. But time and time again I got confronted with code ridden with technical debt. If you are working in tech you probably heard of technical debt. For product managers it is the sword of Damocles alluding delayed projects and rejected feature requests. For engineers it can be a tremendous source of frustration and reason to quit jobs and move on. Why is technical debt so widespread and why is it so hard to beat?

The Cult of Best Practice | domk.website

Best practices are, despite the name, not universally good.

Many best practices in programming don’t meet the definition. They spread not based on merit or evidence but thanks to authority bias and social utility. As they spread, they lose nuance. As they lose nuance, they become easier to evangelise. Combined with lack of experience, they can lead to cult-like behaviour.

Think of an engineering team that got obsessed with a best practice, like test-driven development or writing user stories, to the point of detriment. Many developers have fallen into that trap, myself included.

Maintaining Psychological Safety under Pressure

Maintaining Psychological Safety under Pressure | Articles for project management and agile project management | Scoop.it
When leaders are under pressure they can fall into dark side behaviours that can cause deep and lasting harm to organisation culture and psychological safety.
