I often hear complaints in the Agile space about how leadership and management don’t get Agile. I think much of that is because of how they are talked to. But I also believe it is the set of practices used makes it hard to see their role without doing a deep study of Agile – something they are neither interested in or going to do (and not something they need to do).
It recently occurred to me that one way to evaluate the quality of an approach is how it affects the conversation with leaders and managers.
I just updated my chapter on Using the Intake Process to Educate Leadership.
