Open Agile Adoption Promises Smoother Agile Transitions

The technique applies the principles of agile software development to agile transitions.


When enterprises adopt agile software development methodologies, that change is often imposed from the top down. Developers have no choice or buy-in to the transition process, and they often don't enjoy it.

Proponents of Open Agile Adoption say it's no surprise that many of these large-scale agile transitions that are imposed on developers fail. After all, they violate some of the core principles of the agile movement, such as the importance of invitation and opt-in, as well as the idea that engagement is essential.

Instead, they say it's much better to invite developers to try the new techniques as an experiment and invite them to problem-solve ways to improve the agile transition.
