(had this same conversation elsewhere earlier this morning )
When I first saw this – after my initial ‘wow, what a mess’ reaction – I wondered, what does Deloitte DO with this?
The author describes that here:
and you can download a build-out of the slide.
The build-out starts with scrum and xp. I suspect it is an effective tool for Deloitte sales when working the C level execs who have heard of most of these buzz words.
It’s not as accurate as it should be from a practice relationship viewpoint, but it’s the most extensive attempt at an ‘agile practices relationship model’ that I have seen and rather interesting in that respect.
CTOs and CIOs at Fortune 500 companies respond well to this type of thing. I get asked about some of these relationships often and would honestly like to have a better simpler model of this in my back pocket for some of those conversations.
I suspect Deloitte’s salesman use this quite effectively IF they can speak accurately enough to it to bedazzle the CxO.
I’m not suggesting that Deloitte has right level of experience to really help companies reach true organizational agility, but like Dean’s Big Picture, Deloitte has generated a complex picture that execs can and will relate to… So I expect it will help Deloitte sell more ‘agile’.
