Re: [scrumdevelopment] Does principle based agile approach works with politically motivated organizations?
- Dinesh,In my experience, no. If you've exhausted all positive, professional, and well intentioned change agent type strategies, and some person of significant power is fighting against Agile, then you have a decision to make. You can either stay and put up with it or try to outlast the resistor, or you can leave and find a more Agile friendly company."You can *Change* Your Organization or Change *Your Organization*." -- Martin FowlerYou might also find this "diary of an Agile change agent" type article interesting:-------

Subject: [scrumdevelopment] Does principle based agile approach works with politically motivated organizations?
One of my friend got his hand slapped (after 1 year of implementation) to promote principle based approach to Agile. His boss wants to promote factory model where offshore companies are used to churn out the code and has separate teams to do requirement, architecture and design. Does agile principles works in these kind of situations, where senior management don't want to loose command and control?Thanks & Regards,
