If you’re wondering why agile methods don’t work in your organisation, look no further than this. Very funny, but scarily accurate.
In the words of the Tao of Lao-Tsu, “If you want to control something, you must first let it go free”. Big organisations just don’t get this, because too many people want to hold onto their favourite control mechanism. Agility is a culture, and trying to do it inside a culture of formal control is very difficult. Occasionally you can succeed in spite of the controllers, and that’s a real achievement.
