Dave Machin, Partner at The Berkeley Partnership comments on the adapting agile techniques.
The pursuit of the “agile business”, where multidisciplinary teams focus on solving business problems through the continuous evolution of capability, is seen as a response to the frequent failure of large, “waterfall” business change programs.
But many organizations have mature financial and quality-control mechanisms that have been built around traditional waterfall ways of working. So when should you “go agile” and when should you stick to a traditional waterfall approach? This is a question that has confused many organizations as they prepare to undertake major programs of business change. And it is a question that, according to Dave Machin, partner at The Berkeley Partnership, suggests they haven’t fully grasped what “agile” means.
