Processes and methods can become stale and rote, and can stifle innovation—even processes that were initially developed to be agile.

More > apply them), not only does some kind of Agile practices. Through examples you can see how to introduce the Agile principles, week after week: in 8 weeks we took a team with no prior experience of Agile into changing its mentality and attitude. I hope this journey can help your organisation to do a similar one toward the same goal: being Agile. The examples show which are the general principles and why / when they make sense, so you will be able to inspect your situation, adapt these principles (as needed) and adopt them, finally repeating this cycle continuously. Every week is followed by a Retrospective when the common mistakes are analysed and fixes suggested. All the currently most used methodologies - Scrum, Lean and Kanban - will be described, each one with its advantages and disadvantages.< Less
