In this slide deck, I try to discuss the question how we can move on from where we are today regarding "Agile". I start with a bit of history, where we are coming from in IT and what were the biggest change drivers regarding software development processes. Based on that I explain why agility is needed and useful and what kind of problem it addresses - or at least should address.
Then I look at the typical "Agile transitions" and what went wrong, resulting in a state where "Agile" processes do not the problems they originally were intended for, but basically are the same old story disguised behind some new terminology.
Based on these observations, I end with a few recommendation how to treat such "Agile" settings a bit differently. First, I discuss what to do if "Agile" is not the right fit for the given problem. And secondly, I share a few ideas how to discuss things differently if you are caught in an "Agile" rat race.
As always the voice track is missing, but I hope that also the slides alone will be useful for you.
