Book Description

Release date: October 1, 2013 | ISBN-10: 143025839X | ISBN-13: 978-1430258391 | Edition: 1

Being Agile is your roadmap to successfully transforming your organization to an Agile culture. Veteran agile coach Mario Moreira teaches new adopters how to implement a robust Agile framework to derive from it the maximum business benefit in terms of customer value, revenue, and employee engagement. 
Agile is a ubiquitous watchword in the corporate world, but only a minority of companies understand and practice what they pay lip service to. Too many content themselves with half-baked approximations such as Fragile (fragile Agile), ScrumBut (Scrum but not the practices), and Scrum Fall (mini-waterfalls in the sprints). Moreira shows maturing early adopters how to bridge the chasm between going through the motions of doing Agile and genuinely being Agile.
After a high-level synopsis of Agile’s values and principles, methodologies (including Scrum, Kanban, DSDM, Leam, VFQ, and XP), and roles, Moreira plunges into the nitty-gritty of how to apply theready, implement, coach, and hone (RICH) deployment model to all phases of a project in such a way as to embody and inculcate agile values and principles at the team level and promote agile transformation across your organization's culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book about the "why" of agile November 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While there are plenty of good books out there that teach the mechanics of implementing an agile framework (like Scrum for example), there are relatively few that tackle the "why"of agile as thoughtfully and substantively as "Being Agile". This excellent book is a really valuable addition to the library of anybody who wants to get a handle on the rationale for agile, which in many other books gets little more than a perfunctory mention in the introduction before diving into the mechanics and logistics of its implementation.

Getting real buy-in for agile and the cultural changes that it's adoption requires in an organization, requires the grokking of its principles and values at all levels from the boardroom on down, and "Being Agile" is a fantastic resource for anybody working within an agile environment, or for anybody who is coaching organizations that are transitioning to agile or looking to deepen their own agile culture.

It is no surprise that in many organizations whose initial exposure to agile is often couched in terms of its implementation, there is resistance and confusion - especially in areas like the technology sector where knowledge workers trained to have a critical and analytical mindset will react negatively to anything that appears at first glance to be bogus or superficial. The less talked about "why" of agile is really a prerequisite for the more widely discussed "how" and there are lessons in this excellent book that I am sure I will end up using in my own agile coaching work.

Great book about "pushing the practice into the fabric", about "making it stick", since this is the only bottom line, how to make Agile self sustainable.
