Overcoming the Pitfalls of Transitioning to Agile
If you've been trying to change your organization so that your projects are more agile, you may have encountered several problems-one is that it's difficult to have product management, senior management, and functional managers work together to lead in a way that makes sense for your agile project. You're also probably working with other parts of a large program that isn't agile; you have a geographically distributed team; your management wants to know at the beginning when the project will end; or you might have a project team that does not share a common vision of what "done" means. Johanna Rothman explores common organization, management, team, and individual team member issues. She offers suggestions for making the changes more acceptable and helping people work with you in a way that enables your projects to succeed.
