Agile Does Not Guarantee Value Creation



Leonardo Mattiazzi considers that Scrum and XP do not necessarily create a great product, and complementary Lean principles and practices are necessary to create an Agile culture across the entire enterprise in order to succeed.


Leonardo Mattiazzi has been working at Ci&T for the last 14 years, from developer to VP. His company adopted RUP in the 90’s, obtaining a CMMI-5 certification, then it started to adopt Agile principles and practices. Leonardo has a regular Lean-focused podcast series on iTunes, and blogs about Lean topics at industry outlets that include the CIO Blog and IDG Connect.
