Misconceptions about Agile methods


It is unfortunate that this is all too often the perception of Agile methods, at least initially, in an organisation. What it does highlight though is that unless there is an organisational change in thinking and culture, you are forever going to have problems and be fighting a losing battle. Agile needs to be accepted and understood across the entire organisation including management.

All too often senior management are either left off the list of training required, are never available or simply feel that they don't need it. Nothing can be further from the truth. Everybody needs the training everybody needs to be involved everybody needs to buy in. If you dont have buy in to the changes needed and the pain everyone is to have to endure to make those changes you will have a huge unnecessary hurdle to overcome.
