Pacing an Agile Transition
Most companies take an idealistic approach to their Agile Transition - with "High Performing Agile Teams in X months" being their happily ever after. While there is nothing wrong in aiming high, what confounds me is their planning-heavy Waterfall-like approach to Agile transition, with too much focus on the ultimate goal rather the journey - often leading to management frustration and resistance from teams.
Here, I propose an empirical (incremental and iterative) approach for Agile transitions that minimizes the risk of failure while maintaining high team motivation for change.
