Agile Insanity!

When “Agile transformation” means: 1) Reduce headcount to become “lean,” and 2) Adapt to delivering more with less, consider me part of the resistance! If you need to cut costs then cut costs but don’t dress it up as Agile.

Unbelievable but true story: A current enterprise “Agile transformation” is being sold as: “Radical change to deliver innovative products and services better, faster, cheaper…in record time…up to 70% faster while cutting headcount 30% and improving quality, client satisfaction and employee engagement by 20%…Radical change generates radical resistance so expect up to 50% turnover in two years.”

I call this “Crash and Burn Agile.” Or simply, “Insanity.” Stop the insanity!
