Metagility: Managing Agile Development for Competitive Advantage
Statistics show that 94% of agile transformations fail. Why? After encountering this at my own company, I kicked off a 10- year research study in concert with Georgia State University to answer this question. The results were surprising. Not only did we discover what a few companies were doing right, and what many were doing wrong, but there were a small subset of organizations that actually leveraged agile to become #1 in their market. The learnings from these “super agile adaptations” have been encapsulated into the latest agile framework, Metagility.
