Example text

Michael Spayd undertook a culture survey of Agilistas (Spayd, 2011). His landmark results show that Agile practitioners have a particular culture profile and identified the key elements as collaboration and cultivation. 2). Michael Sahota then mapped the Agile manifesto values and principles to the Schneider model (Sahota, 2012) which showed there is high density of values and practices that are aligned with collaboration and cultivation. So both Sahota’s and Spayd’s analysis were strikingly similar.

2) states that ‘Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility’ and many Agile frameworks provide the tools and techniques for the team to produce very high quality code. 1), many practices are aimed specifically at ensuring that the quality of the product being delivered is fit for purpose. 4). 1), a technique used to increase robustness and simplification of the design of the system without changing the behaviour of the system. A software craftsman creates easy-to-understand software that is designed well, documented well and is easy to build on in the future.

Trying to implement any transformation without taking into consideration the cultural aspect of a business is a fatal mistake that inevitably leads to failure. 4 illustrates a situation where the visible formal system of an organisation has been changed without the underlying culture being changed and aligned. Training the team members, changing their job titles and implementing new processes and tools are not sufficient to create a sustainable transformation to Agile. A significant amount of time and money can typically be spent/wasted changing the visible formal system, which will then inevitably sink back into the ocean because it is not supported by the culture of the business.
