An Interestring from the book "Becoming Agile".
Migrating to Agile is more than changing your process. It also requires a change in culture. For most companies changing culture is the most difficult part. I believe this is true for several reasons. Here are a few:
- Whether successful or not, companies get comfortable with their processes.
- Many people still believe requirements change because they are poorly managed. They cannot comprehend a process that embraces change.
- Most managers have been trained to control events. Empowering the development team to deliver and own the project is not intuitive or logical.
- Job protection. In larger companies whole groups are dedicated to regulating and overseeing projects. An Agile team has less need for these services.
