Yes, I hesitate to continue writing on agile and agile methods as most is said elsewhere. Yet I have to claim that many people still don’t get the core concepts and values as crisp and sharp as needed.
It is also to be repeated again: It is not a method for developers or tech teams, it is a business method to create or adopt services and increase value for customers – and leadership needs drive the mind sets needed.
If agile don’t work out for you, it is an alarm sign on the healthiness of your organisation. I recommend you to analyse the root causes – not for the sake to implement agile, as it is still just a methodology – but for the sake to understand the issues of your organisation that are present independent on any method applied.
Why trying to explain the method for repetition myself, when there is excellent materials present? Hence I decided to point you to three excellent crafted materials as a must read recommendation – indepent on your role or level within any business.
All examples have an emphasis on IT, but it is easy transfer to your daily problems like
how to priorize and quality
how to plan and communicate
how to rely on responsibilities and roles
how to generate autonomy of teams or co workers without loosing focus and guidance
Henrik Kniberg has produced excellent and easy2understand video as a starter. Please see his awesome video on “P(roduct) O(wner) in a Nutshell: https://youtu.be/502ILHjX9EE
An excellent background from a management and cultural point of view, but also introducing the powerful guiding principles behind agile can be read in the excellent book from Jez Humble, Barry O’Reilly, Joanne Molesky in the Lean Enterprise – Book published at O’Reilly.

Here is my presentation from my presentation today at OOP Conference in Munich. The session outlined the evolution of a fictive but typical successful web enterprise from start up over scale out to a cost sensitive business with specialized teams, processes and product owners.
In an interactive workshop we drafted the evolution of the architectural challenges, driven by business needs, and how high scalable web architectures and classical enterprise architecture fit together.
If you are interested in why git is hyped so much I suggest to understand the idea and new possibilities of distributed repositories. So, for git’s architecture I recommend the article here and after that I suggest to jump to Git Pro Book and check on Chapter 5.
Furthermore I suggest to take the warning in this article serious. It also gives a hint to use gerrit as tool for code reviews.
From my perspective release management strategy, build processes and tooling is part of both technical project management and architecture.
So, ambitious developers, be motivated to care about those aspects early!
