Meet the new Agile boss: same as the old, Waterfall boss. That is a pattern that I have noticed in a lot of companies: the boss of agile efforts is also the boss of the old waterfall processes.
This month, I was happy to contribute to another industry publication that helps developers work smarter, and produce better software: Front Row Agile.
Managers may hire staff with agile experience and certifications, or even send their own staff for training. Yet the person who owns all those efforts, agile and waterfall, is the usually same person.
What does that mean for a company’s attempts to adopt a more modern posture? Are their attempts eventually doomed to fail, producing only a limited improvement in the way they deliver?
