“Why Agile Works” review

Why Agile Works

Coming from an Enterprise background in a previous life, of the cascading-waterfall, multiple-signoff, change-control, duelling-project-manager variety, this was a fascinating book. 

This is a book about Agile For Enterprises. Not for the teams like mine that carved an agile garden in a world of fixed-price contracts. This is for the managers who want to know where they sit on The Maturity Model. Those who need to justify why tearing up the hierarchy is a good thing, and how to make a company, not just a silo, agile.

It’s a book about the why and some of the how.

It’s definitely worth a read if those enterprise descriptions sound familiar, or PRINCE2 matters to you. Otherwise, I’m not sure you’ll get much out of it.
