Kill the hybrid

Often I venture into companies that already started to use some sort of Agile way of working like with Scrum or Kanban. When it concerns a large company, frameworks like Scrum or Kanban most of the time aren’t enough. So scaling methodologies are available like  LeSS (Large Scale Scrum), SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) or Nexus. …

With law our land shall rise, but it will perish with lawlessness

The Agile Manifesto was written in February of 2001 by seventeen independent-minded software practitioners . While the participants didn’t agree about much, they found consensus around four main values. For those of you who are not aware they are as follows.

You need to have a SIT

So how do you get things to move within a larger organization? As I mentioned before just hiring an Agile Coach doesn’t do the trick. He or she can only bring change on those parts where people are willing to change. But it is just like a Chinese plate spinner. Once you have the first …

Be the change

People hire me as a Scrum coach to help them to make changes. Often these people work at companies that want to work with an Agile Framework, often Scrum. In many cases when I have the first talks about the how’s and why’s. I get most of the information I need as a coach to …

Think universal

We people need an end to things. We like to see where we are going, and we want to round things up. Yet we like to talk about continues integration and delivering software as a service and not as a product, at least when your mind is set to agile thinking and collaborating. Every year …

Kick them out

Years ago I attended my first ever Scrum course. I was to become a Scrummaster and in front of me was the insightful and powerful Jeff Sutherland. Everything he told us was grand and fantastic.

You’re doing it wrong

Wrong way Scrum

I often encounter people who use Scrum according to their opinion as it is supposed to be done but when I ask certain questions it seems they are not doing it at all. I often wonder why that is. Scrum isn’t so difficult but in order to get it to work it is important to …

Do the right thing

Do the right thing

Software development can be complex. It needs a lot of thinking about code should be written and how complex systems should communicate amongst themselves. It doesn’t become more easy if you ad the various titles that are involved with this development process.

Agile does damage

Agile does damage

Agile can inflict a lot of irreversible damage to companies and teams and it can, in most cases, not be repaired. I sometime encounter companies that have implemented a form of Agile. Sometimes they use Scrum or Kanban and in other occasions they only use a few things from these Agile work models. But no …
