“When product managers weren’t looking, developers went Agile.”
This quote from Barbara Nelson gave me a chuckle. I found it when reading The Mythical Product Owner, by Andre Kaminsky and discovered that this article gives excellent insight into the role of the product owner.
Andre speaks to the change happening in an organization when they adopt agile and breaks it down into bite-sized bits which really helps conceptualize the shifting happening across the industry.
He describes two key levels of change, mainly that:
Change must happen on two levels across the organization:
- Technical – Roles and responsibilities must be understood, accepted, and adopted.
- Cultural – Attitudes, expectations, political ambitions, and how we collaborate must change.
He writes that Agile should not come in with a “big bang” approach but by introducing it in a gradual manner, allowing confidence and capacity to build, then the results can be more profound and long-lasting.
This is one of the tenets that Kanban espouses; that the Kanban Method allows for gradual change and therefore a higher success level in professional businesses.
