      Two years ago, Gartner predicted that by 2012 80% of software development projects would use Agile methods. Even if the real number is half that, it's substantial. And on too many of those projects, Agile falls flat.

      Of course, they all employ people, so many challenges belong on the human side. But in addition, organizations struggle with the basics of doing Agile. For instance, chances are your team or company experiences at least one of the following issues:
      • Not enough, unavailable, or unaccountable product owners
      • Regularly slipping iterations (not getting to "done")
      • The entire team spending forever in meetings
      • False starts or ineffective ventures into test-driven development (or other sophisticated Agile engineering practices)
      • Not quite knowing how managers and project managers can be effective in an Agile environment
      I recently put together a free mini-program for people in your situation (hundreds are using it already). Sign up for it and over the next 20 days you'll receive one training segment per day by email:

      Each training segment in this mini-program, called "Something Happened on the Way to Agile," explains how to resolve a common challenge or concern with Agile. For instance, you'll learn 8 tips for effective retrospectives, and techniques to balance project work commitments with on-going support activities.

      These 20 problem areas have caused many practitioners to give up on Agile (or to merely tolerate it, if they had no choice). This mini-program will increase your results especially if you're doubting whether Agile could really work in your organization.
