Agile Partners? Proof is in the pudding…

Dealing with “Agile partners”

How could you distinguish a “good partner” when it comes to “agility”?

The proof is in the pudding

  • Cannot show their backlog, what strategies they follow to manage it, how transparent it is, how they slice their “product”… so no “managed backlog”, no discipline or practices related to it.
  • Cannot describe their feedback loops, are not “managed”, and their outputs and outcomes are not clearly articulated (and their clients are not involved)
  • Their structures follow the traditional functional models they consult their clients to move away from. And the roles they have, follow the same pattern.
