Would you try a new sport that involves risk of injury or harm without some form of guidance, training, or coaching? For most people, the answer is likely to be a very firm no. In contrast, organizations and teams new to Agile, or scaling, often adopt a we’ll try it anyway approach. The results vary from wasted time to delivery disasters. As a keen amateur figure skater, I have found that my journey from first stepping onto the ice to successfully competing, closely mirrors how teams attempt to apply Agile. You’ll learn how, with Agile as with ice skating, many slips and falls can be avoided. You’ll discover some warning signs to look out for and actions you can take towards a smoother, safer winning team.
