“Where to Turn in a Downturn Economy?”

with 2 comments

Jean has a nice post in the Agile Blog on team dysfunctions and Agile. Her recommendation on the subject is crisp:

If you are looking to Agile and how it can cut costs for your organization, consider the power of your teams. Work to engender trust and promote an ability to have constructive conflict. Empower your teams and amplify the learning that teams bring to organizations.

I will allow myself to go one more step. IMHO Agile exposes team dysfunctions and organizational pathologies. This is the reason Agile is so powerful on the one hand, and why it might meet strong resistance on the other.
