There are two popular approaches to starting an Agile transition. One is a using a pre-defined approach, such as Scrum, or the opposite extreme, the Kanban Method, start where you are. The first (Scrum) suggests jumping to a structure and workflow we know works, when it’s followed. The second says to start where you are, manage your work in process, and then go from there. I think both miss the main point of agile – “inspect and adapt.’ In other words, one should always see where one is, then one should consider what’s the best course of action.
