Goal: To cover (or uncover) three common patterns during Agile adoption by organizations.

There are many common patterns I observed in organizations during implementing Agile mindset and Scrum framework. Let’s focus on three of them:

I observed many patterns that may lead to ineffective, frustrating Agile adoption:
1. No need for change or to re-organize.
2. Lack of fully implemented Agile/Lean frameworks (like Scrum, Kanban or XP)
3. Focus on Schedules and PMO rather than Product and Customers.

This is my experience from the last 12 years of Agile adoption. I have been observing many patterns and I would like to share the three – in my opinion, the most important ones. My observation is that organizations declare they would like to “be” Agile, however, at the same time they sabotaging this decision to avoid as many changes as they can.
