…to your Brother-in-Law.
Joe’s article serves as an excellent precursor to our comparison of agile software development methodologies.
It would also be extremely effective advice for getting mindshare prior to rolling out agile in your organization. In fact, we should add “mistake #11” to that list: Roll out agile without explaining what agile is.
Why should you read Joe’s article? Here’s a quote:
What are the benefits?
The benefits can be stated many ways, but usually amount to these things:
- Faster time to market
- More business value delivered per period
- More accurate delivery of business value (the customer gets what they really need)
- More transparency for the business (the business can see where their investment is going, and how they can help remove impediments)
- More satisfied customers and shareholders
- More satisfied workers
My general rule of thumb is that in 2 years a team should be 4x as productive as before Agile.
Any value in a 4x productivity improvement for your team?
Check it out, and we’re all looking forward to more from Joe!
