Bridging Ambition and Ability
Agile Teams Must Learn to Walk Before They Sprint
Agile is everywhere, but not every organization is ready for it. According to the 12th annual State of Agile survey published by CollabNet VersionOne, 41 percent of organizations cite a lack of skills or experience with agile approaches as a major barrier. It's up to project managers to determine how to bridge the gap for teams that are agile-deficient or agileresistant. Whether these gaps are caused by a lack of knowledge, an indifference to new approaches or a philosophical opposition, getting team members up to speed on agile approaches takes proactive and persistent engagement from start to finish.
