As Agile way of working is gaining acceptance across industry, some of us becoming more adamant on an extreme form of Agile. Some of us converting Agile into a fixed idea where Agilist knows the best. This behavior turns any Agilist into a person of fixed set of ideas and beliefs though Agile demand for adaptation and continuous learning.

In this talk, I intend to bring up few of the trend which is pushing Agile movement into a far corner of extremism.

    Thanks Ravi for starting the conversation.

    One of the example which I encounter regularly is – Agile team is the only entity, no role for management. This view led to resentment among middle management of any enterprise and also negate the need to the hierarchy in the organization. In my view and experience hierarchical structure in an essential devil in any organization of sufficient size. Hierarchy not only provide control structure (I do not like this part) but also provides a net to avail some of the essential services (e.g. financial & non-financial incentive distribution, need of classification which helps us to organize, aspiration for individuals to climb up on the ladder, etc.).

    Similar to above, I like to discuss few more observations.

    Hi Tushar,

    Agile adoption for sure has been in many different ways and what makes teams think they are agile also varies quite a lot. That said; it will help if you can sight some real examples and pros/cons of it so that some of us could relate to what you mean by Agile movement into a far corner of extremism.
