Great article by Johanna Rothman…makes you take a step back and think for a second about where we contribute to this, and how to fix it. Maybe we should hold an agile practitioner open retro using TRIZ to see how we can help?
@JayH, please tell me more about what an open retro using TRIZ would help. I’m not opposed. I don’t understand. I need more words, please. Maybe with an example. Thanks.
@johannarothman see the link below. Imagine a room full of practitioners discussing the question “What can we as agile practitioners do in order to make sure we ensure that “agile” becomes a commodity instead of the transformative enlightenment it should be?” I think we’d end up with some insights into what the industry is doing wrong, and maybe some ideas on how to right the ship.
Or maybe i’m too optimistic
I suspect TRIZ would work better inside an organization rather than outside, but yes. I often ask, “What can make this worse?” when I’m assessing a problem. (https://createadaptablelife.com/2018/08/whats-the-worst-thing-you-could-do.html)
We might be able to work for the good of the industry, but the forces against enlightenment are fierce. And, an enlightened transformation requires work. What a lot of people sell is not-work.
