Thanks for sharing that article, Sergio.
All of my Agile teachers have described Agile as an evolution or continuation of Lean. You've done a nice job showing correlation between them.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Well, for people like me who are involved with agile from the very beginning not only creating methods or talking about that but involved in implementing agile at all levels is critical that people really understand about agile. Unfortunately, agile becomes a buzzword. In this case, this article was written by Heidi Araya but I have wrote a lot similar. For example, for PM Network ("Perfectly poistioned", English: http://www.pmnetwork-digital.com/pmnetwork/april_2016?pg=73#pg73

Thank-you also for writing and sharing that article, Sergio.

Why do so many project managers still try to "do" Agile in a non-agile organization? As your article states, this requires organizational change. It takes more than a project manager for an organization to become agile, and to attempt organizational change for the sake of a project seems like an extreme case of undefined scope.

Before "Agile" became a buzzword, did project managers try to "do Lean" in organizations that had not adopted Lean principles?

By the way, you've mentioned using Agile outside of software development. Have you written about this, as well? I'd love to read more.

Thank you very much for your words Wade. And you are totally right. That is because I am participating into each forum, each conference, each space to talk about "the other side of agile" (that in fact, is the real side because agile movement started there). Obviously, I do not own the truth but I firmly believe that if more people understand what agile is that will be good for all of us, mainly those who are working (as myself) implementing agile from years (today I am working on my seventh initiative). For example, about what you say, we use a method to decide if agile can be used and I wrote an article about that (the article was published by the IIBA and the PMI as best practice. Here the link, perhaps it helps to somebody:http://www.projectmanagement.com/blog-post...-right-solution ). About agile outside software I made this lot of times. For example, three years ago, to help the organization in launching a new biscuit to the market that, thanks God, was a success.

I love reading about agile's beginnings. I am not surprised that it started with engineers. A lot of what we now use in project management and software development came from the engineering industry.

Totally agree Stéphane. In fact from years software industry has tried to perform like other industries taking examples like production line, quality practices, the economy of scale and lot more.
