This episode of the Agile Uprising Podcast found its start in a blog post Chris Murman posted on his (must subscribe) blog. The post synthesizes the recent white paper from 6point6 that essentially says we aren’t “doing” agile right. 6point6 commissioned a survey of 300 CIOs in the UK and the US to examine their experiences of Agile and measure how successfully the principles of Agile are being applied and executed. One of the key findings was:
“British business is set to waste an estimated £37 billion on failed Agile IT projects over the course of the next 12 months”.
Our hosts, Jay Hrscko, Chris Murman, Andrew Leff and Ryan Lockard talk through various parts of the white paper and the subsequent blog post from Chris. We talk about the impact of agile-as-a-business, the reality of distributed teams, team commitment, the criticality of modern DevOps and the show closes with a passionate conversation about non-functional requirements (NFRs).
Through the show, you will hear mentions of Chris’ Texas-ness, Ryan’s love of sour beer and Jay’s metal album of the year.
