How "Bottom Up" is Failing the Agile Community

May 4, 2010 · Morrisville, United States of America

Presentation Summary: Since the early days of XP and later, the Agile Manifesto, the Agile movement has promoted a culture and value system that advocates support for empowered development teams making decisions on how best to innovate software development practices from the "bottom up". While corporate change mandated by executive fiat has consistently proven a failure, the Agile movements success in promoting the idea that "top down" executive involvement in helping to drive broad Agile adoption is unwelcome or inherently "bad" is increasingly putting sustainable Agile transformation in medium and large companies at great risk. In his talk, Brad Murphy will share first hand observations about current corporate executive attitudes, behaviors and trends that present opportunities for the Agile community to reconsider the "bottom up" point of view. About Brad Murphy:Brad has spent nearly 28 years focused on product and software development innovation, near and off shore Agile software development innovation centers and launching innovation start-ups.
