Jeff Dalton describes the need for companies to adopt agile principals or not. In other words, if the company is going to be agile, then it must be agile in the way it runs marketing, advertising, sales, accounting, operations, human resources … everything. Run your company with agile values, because it’s not about Scrum or XP, it’s about values. It’s about asking, ‘Are we operating a collaborative, iterative, transparent and high trust environment?’ If we’re going to do that, then the techniques trickle down.
