The State of Agile Development
Enterprise Agile PlanningAgile development is change, and change is hard. Wouldn't we all agree? Agile leader and product manager Dave Moran said a couple of things in his recent reaction to our State of Agile Development Survey results which really struck me as interesting:
- If you're using agile development as a vehicle for software development improvement only, without really changing how the business specifies software features, you most likely won’t gain much ground on the speed/to/market front.
- Adopting agile development might allow you to build a lot of features a little bit faster; but if you want speed/to/market, you need to figure out what not to build.
- True change involves changes in mindsets and behaviors at all levels of the organization.
