Agile isn’t all it’s cracked up to be

Christopher Andrews

    Research output: Contribution to journalMagazine ArticleResearch

    Abstract

    Extract: Agility is just another HR fad that enables consultants and consulting companies to take more of your hard-earned money. I just can’t see what makes an agile employee any more valuable than a regular flexible employee. Yet there seems to be endless books, articles and conferences for you to pursue your Agile dream.

    I recently made the snarky comment: Agile is just fragile with a dash of hope. Do we really want Agility when it’s a matter involving significant investment, compliance, ethics, morals, or legality?
