Have you ever tried hopping onto a moving train? That is what it feels like for those of us who join dysfunctional Agile projects already in motion. Everything is moving really quickly, but you don’t know exactly where you’re going. For that reason, you attempt to figure out a few things:
- What are the project/team issues - does the team even know what Scrum is?
- What is expected of you - do they know what a Scrum Master does?
- What all are the government quirks - do your government partners think we can just "go Agile"?
A situation like this would call for a Agile mindset. But what does it really mean to have an Agile mindset and what does it look like?
This talk will outline some techniques for employing an Agile mindset when considering the people, process and tools of an inflight project from several different angles. I will also discuss some lessons learned from working with government partners in a not-so Agile environment.
