How Disciplined Agile Resolves the Dilemma of Enabling Teams to Self-Organize While Having Consistency Across the Org



Many managers in charge of Agile adoptions insist that teams use a consistent approach. Yet we know that different teams in different situations need to do different things. Is the idea of consistency misplaced? No. The question is, what is it that we need to be consistent?

All methods should be attempting to increase delivery of value in a predictable, sustainable manner. Accomplishing this requires similar objectives, albeit achieve in different ways. Practices need to  provide quick feedback, eliminate the need for rework, increase collaboration, enable us to improve our methods and more. How this is accomplished is different for different parts of the organization

DA enables this by providing options for teams so they can select what works for them for each of these objectives. By using practices that are fit for purpose, teams are more likely to achieve what’s needed than by taking preset practices, some of which fit them and some of them don’t. Having teams consistently choose what works best for them is more likely to have teams consistently manifest the desired outcome of Agile than forcing teams to do what doesn’t work for them.
