      Kshitij Agrawal - Implementing Agile in non-agile world

      The simplicity of agile frameworks makes many of us believe that agile is simple. However, it’s actually extremely hard to make it working in a non-agile environment. By non-agile environment, I mean organizations which are fundamentally driven by heavy controls and governance; systems which are legacy large, complex & tightly coupled; multiple stakeholders with conflicting priorities and list goes on.  


      This paper is share my experiences of one such journey of implementing agile in such non-agile world. It was quite a bumpy ride but in the end, we got a recipe with perfect blend of scrum, XP and Kanban practices – something which was generating visible value and truly in line with agile principles.

      Entrepreneurship in product development is all about raising agile concepts to entrepreneurial level in a way that would clinch success by innovation, autonomy, proactiveness, risk-taking and other characteristics associated with entrepreneurship. 

      The present paper describes briefly how to make a Agile product development approach as entrepreneurial. An entrepreneur has high level of personal ownership and this is due to the fact that an entrepreneur understands that failure is not an option, so this approach of personal ownership sets performance standard high. Similarly entrepreneurial project manager understand that if the project fails then the organization fails. This paper also talks about three main aspects of entrepreneurial project management which are entrepreneurial orientation, entrepreneurial management and entrepreneurship strategy.
