12 Agile Adoption Failure Modes – Jean Tabaka – 9 June

12 Agile Adoption Failure Modes Jean Tabaka, Agile Fellow, Rally Software

SUMMARY

Agile methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban take some heat when they appear to have failed to deliver expected benefits to an organization. In fact, Agile initiatives very often backslide and bring about abandonment of the adoption due to this perceived correlation of methodology and failure. In my travels worldwide as an Agile Coach for more than 7 years, I have continued to contend that Agile practices don’t fail—rather the variations on Agile adoption fail. And regrettably, these failures seem to come back to a core set of usual suspects all too frequently. In this session, I present my latest top twelve seemingly ubiquitous failure modes. See which ones may (still) be painfully familiar to you, and which other ones you personally have experienced in your organization.

 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Jean Tabaka

Jean Tabaka, Agile Fellow with Rally Software, is continuing on her 30 year path of learning about software development principles, processes, and practices for people. She seeks a humane approach to bringing high value to our communities of creators and consumers. This has led her to move into Kanban and Lean approaches as well as systems thinking and complexity theory that reach beyond traditional Agile software frameworks. Jean holds a Masters in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University. She is the author of “Collaboration Explained” and a variety of articles on Agile, organizational change, team dynamics, systems thinking, Lean thinking, and other associated topics. Jean blogs at www.rallydev.com/agileblog and can be followed on twitter as @jeantabaka. When home in Boulder, CO, she’d invite you over for some wine and some music while gazing across her backyard over a Flat Iron Mountains sunset. Meanwhile, you can find her at jean.tabaka@rallydev.com
