The prerequisites

  • Nobody should be forced into Agile Working

  • It will take some time until miracles happen

  • It takes commitment to rigorously stick to roles and processes (similar as when learning to play music in a band - because if you start to exchange instruments during the show (roles) or you change the order of the songlist you're playing - chaos and confusion will be the result

  • It is hard to learn to work in an agile way by just reading books.

  • Only by using the principles and applying them in practice will help you become good at agile working.

  • Theory is great to get an idea of what is the purpose of agile working and to put experiences and learnings into a greater context.

  • Agile and non agile work forms should not be applied at the same time, however they can coexists.
