Data compiled from the Standish Group’s Chaos Report from 2002 to 2010
shows that Agile projects were successful 42% of the time, compared
with 14% for traditional waterfall projects. Waterfall projects failed
at a 29%, compared to Agile’s 9% rate. This significant difference
between Agile and waterfall for both successful and failed projects
is, as Darth Vader remarked while contemplating it, “Impressive … most
But what of the remaining projects? These are classified as
“Challenged”, meaning the project missed one or more of its scope,
schedule, and budget goals. For waterfall, the “challenged” projects
equaled 57%, while for Agile the number was 49%.
What if a significant number of the “challenged” Agile projects were
the result of Bad Agile? What if by curing the Bad Agile they could be
converted to the “Successful” category?
This presentation will discuss the causes of and ways to avoid Bad
Agile, along with lessons and observations the speaker obtained during
recently completed an 8-month journey coaching a team and organization
through a mission-critical project.
Were they able to avoid Bad Agile? Is your organization practicing Bad
Agile? Would you be interested in the potential of doubling or
quadrupling your velocity?
