In this episode of CMMI-TV, Jeff Dalton explains that agile is an aspirational way of doing business, not a methodology. “Agile is something we are. CMMI is something we use to make it better.”
Jeff explains how agile projects have to be driven by aspirational values that come from the leadership of an organization, rather than pushed uphill from project teams. Agile has to be built into the culture of an organization.
