RE: [scrumdevelopment] Re: Performance Reviews/Job Descriptions in an Agile Environment
- Well, if there is no commitment, then that is the ultimate hesitancy. If there is no commitment, small steps at a time will not happen anyway.
I don't have a solution to the situation where there is no commitment. In the face of obstinate refusal and lack of commitment, I am afraid that I am helpless. If there is no commitment, pussy-footing around in small steps and so on is a waste of everyone's time, because there will be no useful outcome. 'Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic' is the phrase that springs to mind from popular sloganeering.

It's possible to generate commitment, though, and in my experience
often much easier to generate commitment to the next small experiment
than to a revolutionary overhaul.
That's not to say that I'm against revolutionary overhauls. I'd like
to be part of one at some point. I just don't see them happen very
often. And still, I do see change.
