Rules in Agile Transformation: 80/20 and “Not Everybody Likes to Dance”
Let’s try to connect the 80/20 rule and “not everybody likes to dance” rule together to have a better understanding of the problem.
Agile manifesto was created to help with a big problem that was present in software community: amount of projects that failed.
Over fifteen years later we have strong Agile communities that are promoting it and doing everything they can to transform everyone to use Agile.
As with every other solution, 80/20 rule holds: it’s easy to start and not that easy to master. Interestingly, as not with so many solutions, there is very nonlinear factor, a human factor, that can make the final 20% not achievable at all.
