Is Agile just a HYPE?
The Agile adoption within organizations often follows similar patterns along a typical hype curve. After some early, cool adopters and pioneers brought Agility into the company and have shown success on the small scale, expectations start to rise and Agility is pushed within the whole organization. The hype is taking off and after a steep rise, many organizations are faced with reality and find themselves in a situation that expectations are not fulfilled: They fall into a ‘valley of tears’ or frustrations. They ask themselves if Agile can keep what it promised. In this talk, we would like to show you our experiences from advising many companies, how you could maneuver out of the “valley of tears” to explore your own way becoming an Agile Enterprise successfully.
