Quick Glance At: Agile Anti-Patterns

Learn how to Spot and Solve Agile Problems

Ebook: Agile Anti-Patterns

Flexible, lean, fast: Agile tools like Scrum, Kanban or SAFe allow companies to keep up and to thrive in a fast-changing world. But "Agile" does not "just work" - to be successful as an agile company, you must be ready to change the structures and the mindset inside your organization. When this is not happening from the very start, companies often face problems.

One of the signs that you are facing problems is when you see micro-management or strict rules. But even in companies that do most things right there are often areas that could still be improved.

This book will help you to...

  • spot and recognize problems and anti-patterns in your team and organization,
  • understand the root causes of those anti-patterns,
  • discuss problems and root causes within your team and management,
  • find potential solutions and strategies for improvement.

Learn more about common anti-patterns and strategies for solving them!

Common Anti-Patterns

Quick Glance At: Agile Anti-Patterns contains 9 anti-patterns, how they often start, their root causes and ideas for solving them:

  • Agile Theater - When companies pretend to be "agile", but most things still work like in a traditional company.
  • Feature Factory - When "Agile" is only seen as a way to increase efficiency.
  • Product Backlog Bankruptcy - When your backlog becomes unmanagably big and this causes delays and other problems.
  • Architecture Breakdown - When architecture and software design slowly gets worse over time.
  • Team Backlog - When there are improvements that your team wants to implement, but they just never have time.
  • Burnout by 1000 Baby Steps - When agile tools are used to micro-manage people and teams.
  • Collaboration Friction - When working together with other teams and departments does not work anymore.
  • Tailoring Agile - When companies want to change Scrum or Kanban or SAFe before even trying it.
  • Because they Said So - When your company blindly copies practices of other companies.
