Agile Transformation

Recently I’m reading a blog that listed the Knowledge Areas for Agile adoption. It was written by Mike Cottmeyer, and I liked it. Most process improvement champions such as me would agree with this list, though a few more can be added to this. Let me list out the list.

1. Agile Methods, 2. Rational Unified Process, 3. Lean, 4. Theory of Constraints, 5. Traditional Project Management, 6. Capability Maturity Model (CMMi), 7. Systems Thinking, 8. Learning Organizations, 9. Conversation Theory, 10. Change Management, 11. Covey’s 7 Habits, and 12. System of Profoud knowledge.

Any one who is championing the cause of Agile in organization should be familier with these concepts and theories and should apply these while transitioning on organization into Agile. I will also add “Managing organizational structure” and “Top Management Commitment” are two vital levers to a successfull adoption.

Cheers, and have a good day.
