Is your organisation really Agile?
You might be thinking of going Agile or you are already working within an Agile framework but how much agility can you really expect to achieve?
The answer: You are as Agile as the least Agile element involved in the delivery process. Development is just one aspect of it!
What about your infrastructure? How easy is it to mobilise resources and how flexible are those resources to iterative changes?
What about your release process into production? Is it risk free? Can you in all confidence release as often as your new found Agility dictates?
What about your architecture? Can it really support your iterative refactoring process? Is it consistent, well understood and flexible enough?
How much "technical debt" have you accummulated in your back-end systems over the years? How many skills are involved in the change process (Messaging, DBA, other 3rd parties, heterogenous languages)? Are there any gray areas that only a select few understand and where the smallest change can harm your business.
Those factors are "Velocity killers", "Agility showstoppers" !
