Are you and agile project manager developing software for not-so-agile stakeholders? Perhaps you’re a product owner wishing for a more agile manager or development team.
Here’s my advice: When all else is in question including the scope and the budget and the timing of milestones, put the people first.
By this I mean:
1. How will this impact the end user?
2. How will this impact the stakeholders and company short and long term?
3. How will this impact the project manager and development team short and long term?
4. What are the risks vs. the rewards when evaluating the people involved.
Evaluate the process that it takes to make a change because flexibility is important and change is inevitable.
