Enterprise Agile: extending the agile process outside development
I previously wrote about Enterprise Agile, not because I just want to put the “enterprise” moniker in front of everything, but because I think there are some fundamental challenges in moving to agile software development practices within enterprises, as opposed to startups. This follow-up post is triggered by the following comment on my previous article about this subject: Where we are struggling as an organization is the whole enterprise adopting agile. Sales and marketing expect each release to have a “big splash”. Services hates the rapid iterations since they have a waterfall mindset where you accept a new release every 6 months and spent time chewing on it. I would love some pointers on resources that help move these parts of the value chain to agile.
