Organizations need to be using agile methodologies to keep up with clients/customers’ needs, rapidly changing regulations, and keeping up or staying ahead of the competition. It is a natural evolution of business. Over the past 15 years, more and more organizations started their agile journey.
As time passes, not only did software development teams transform to using agile methodologies, organizations started to get other divisions to transform as well. They saw the value of agile and wanted to achieve more with other groups. All parts of the evolution make sense due to the ability to lean out some red tape and bottlenecks. They would take the methodology used with the development teams and apply it to those departments. Unfortunately, that decision could create more frustration and failure to use those methodologies effectively.
Reason? Agile frameworks are tools used in an agile mindset that meet the needs of the team. Suppose the needs and flow does not fit what the framework can support. That doesn’t mean that other departments can’t be agile; what it means is they need the right tool to get it done. Imagine an organization like this toy.
