Agile beyond Software Development

Submitted by croga

And then I ran into this article: http://pragdave.me/blog/2014/03/04/time-to-kill-agile/
Dave Thomas argues that "Agile software development" is little more than "drop most processes, think about the impact of what you do NOW on what you're going to do NEXT". And isn't that exactly what needs to be done in the rest of the company as well? Wouldn't all work be done more efficiently if we projected the Agile Manifesto on it?

The Agile Enterprise

Submitted by croga
In Agile Land I work with companies implementing Agile for their software development practices. Invariably they run into the problem that for software development to be agile, a lot of the surrounding enterprise needs to adapt as well.

The Product Backlog

Submitted by croga

In Software Development we are always working on providing as much Value as possible against the lowest cost possible. SCRUM was designed to implement this for the Software Development process. SCRUM does not say anything about the process that leads to a full Product Backlog. It simply states that "This should be done or else you can't develop anything".

Agile nu en toekomst

Submitted by croga

Agile nu: Software Development
Forester’s Tom Grant, Ph. D. stelt in zijn stuk dat Agile vooral zo succesvol blijkt in software ontwikkeling omdat het niet probeert meer te beschrijven dan alleen het software ontwikkel proces.
In plaats van het volledige proces tussen idee en markt te beschrijven heeft Agile zich beperkt tot dat deel van het proces waar de software gebouwd wordt. De tools die Agile biedt richten zich volledig op het vereenvoudigen en versnellen van dat deel van het proces.
