In this episode of The Agilistocrats, Richard Cheng from Excella Consulting, Dhaval Panchal from Agile 42 and I (Dave Prior from BigVisible) discuss some of the common misconceptions people coming from a traditional (waterfall) background have when they come into Agile Training classes.
Knowledge workers coming from a waterfall backgound, especially those of us who have put in the time and effort to get a certification like PMP, face very specific challenges in learning how to let go of how we were taught to work. We may not believe that the traditional model works, (according to The Standish Group, IT Projects only succeed between 30%-40% of the time) but that does not necessarily mean we are ready to embrace an intrnalize an Agile way of looking at work. During the podcast we spend time sharing the different things each of us does in class to try and help folks let go of the concrete liferaft.
