Please don’t declare yourself ‘Agile’ when…

Posted By on Août 23, 2012

  • You constantly change the direction of your product
  • Your meetings are disorganized and without objectives
  • As a team member, you decide to work on something completely out of scope
  • You categorically refuse to put in some extra hours to get the job done
  • You reject all that is PMBoK
  • You don’t have a plan

I regularly witness individuals and teams using Agile as a scapegoat and hiding behind Agile to maintain numerous dysfunctional behaviours and practices.

Before ever saying “Hey! We’re just being Agile”, take a good look at the manifesto and try map your actions to one of the values or principles. Odds are, you won’t be able to.
