Experimentation Mindset and “Installing Agile” with Doc Norton

Author of Escape Velocity: Better Metrics for Agile Teams and keynote of Mile High Agile 2018, Doc Norton thinks that people tend to misinterpret how success is achieved: “Just because it worked in that environment doesn’t means it’s going to work for you.” He advocates for an experimentation mindset, rather than simply following practices that are popularly accepted as leading to successful results, whether that’s Spotify’s scaling model or SAFe. “Everyone should figure out what works in their context” rather than just “installing Agile” whether that’s pair programming or code review or something else.
