A Summary of

I'm Sorry, But Agile Won't Fix Your Products

Agile methodology alone will not make a strong product manager / developer or product.

Most important agile tenant:

  • The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
  • SCRUM is then used to monitor the teams, not a top-down management tool.
  • Market leaders (e.g., Spotify, Yammer, Holacracy) allow teams to decide what and how to build instead of pushing work to individuals.

Steps to begin to implement these new models:

  1. Determine a project
  2. Put together a small team
  3. Give a problem and empower them to solve it You know it’s working because your team will be coming up with more new ideas and getting those ideas in front of your customers faster than before. Need to determine how to scale it. Beyond Agile, this process distributes authority and allows customers, partners and employees to own the process not just management.
