Stop Pretending to Be Agile
According to the 15th annual State of Agile report, there has been a tremendous increase in the adoption of agile frameworks over the last year. Within software teams, agile adoption grew from 37% in 2020 to 86% in 2021.
In the midst of this Agile explosion, many teams are experiencing difficulties. According to the 15th Annual State of Agile report, 46% of survey respondents report struggles with inconsistent practices and 43% report cultural classes.
Why is this? Often, organizations and teams that adopt Scrum have not fully embraced the concepts behind empiricism (making decisions based on what is known), and have not adopted the three pillars that make empiricism possible: transparency, inspection and adaptation.
In this Scrum Pulse webinar, Professional Scrum Trainer Mary Iqbal discusses the common signs of pretending to be agile and how you can use Empiricism to stop pretending.
