Earlier this month, I was interviewed by internet radio show, Money for Lunch. The program introduces leaders, authors and innovators to a business-minded audience focused on business and financial news. I spoke with Bert Martinez regarding the topic of agile. We went over some of the basics, such as:
- What is agile and Scrum?
- What are the common pitfalls of agile or anti-patterns an organization might see?
- How does BigVisible avoid the pushback and get organizations to successfully adopt agile?
I speak to the topic of agile as a fundamental shift in how large organizations view the delivery of products and projects – going from big batch, long-phased delivery cycles to something iterative and incremental – quickly bringing products to market.
It’s easy for organizations to become bogged down in their own processes and systems. But more and more, organizations are widely adopting and scaling agile to be more responsive, to increase quality and achieve more successful outcomes because the market is demanding it. Buyers are more knowledgeable and know what they’re looking for and they demand better product in shorter timeframes. If organizations can’t deliver, they won’t be able to remain competitive.
