More Implications of Agility

How will agile development affect your calendar?

In the second and third installments of "what Agile means to the rest of us" posted originally on LinkedIn Tom and I discuss new behaviors you should expect to notice when working with an Agile team.

A new set of questions will emerge and they focus on the business value that a project delivers. The discussion is all about outcomes, not how things are accomplished. This is done to set the right priorities. Gone are the days where available resources defined priorities -- "we can't do that because we don't have {fill in here}, but we can do this because we have {fill in here}."

The only way in business to hit a target is to course adjust - frequently. Agile projects are dynamic and the team adapts as we figure things out. So, clear your calendar and expect to meet frequently.

The new normal
