In January 2001 a gathering of like-minded individuals produced the Agile Manifesto, an astonishing document that is still just as relevant 14 years later. Then the commercialisation, commoditisation and certification began, and the enterprise world began adopting a set of methods that are anything but “agile”.
As Inigo Montoya continually chides his companion Vizzini in The Princess Bride: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
In this talk Dan North attempts to unpack the popularity of these anything-but-agile methods and proposes an alternative that might just work in the enterprise. A combination of lean thinking, hypothesis-based change and giving people control of their own workplace could be the solution. It’s harder to sell certificates though.
