Jeff Dalton from the popular “Ask the CMMI Appraiser” blog explains how having a successful Agile organization involves bringing management on board. In particular, management must take responsibility for aligning the organization’s values, methods and techniques. For example, if they say, “Hey, I want you to be Agile, but use Waterfall …” they are doing a poor job of aligning the values, methods and techniques of the organization, and chaos will ensue.
