  • Did not learn why *only* Agile organizations will survive

    by Johnny FromCanada,

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    I watched this presentation eager to learn and like. But alas, there is nothing on Why *Only* Agile Organizations Will Survive.

    This talk seemed to be just yet another summary / regurgitation of a (incomplete) list of various fuzzy sources backing the historical Agile movement. Worse still, some are becoming quite dated, in particular the Agile Manifesto, which has been variously augmented and even rejected, (even by original signatories).

    At this point, relying (indeed asserting rudely to at least one questioner) on the Agile Manifesto to define the contemporary lean-agile / continuous value-delivery / collaboration movement amounts to not much more than the "cargo cult" we usually associate with blindly following a process like Scrum.

    The reality is that the choice of "way" will always depend on the context. Some scenarios and even domains will benefit from, if not outright require, non-Agile ways of delivery, or more likely hybrids thereof.

    Or perhaps I am simply a victim here of a click-bait title. :-)
