Faux Agile

I ran across a term and definition that nicely encapsulated some of the pain that has plagued many of us who have dipped in and out of Agile methodologies over the years…and wanted to share.

“Faux Agile”

Groups of people, rarely even worth of the title “teams”, where folks go through the motions of “doing agile”, typically at the behest of managers who want “productivity” or some other – often imagined and nebulous – agile benefits, but who remain unwilling to allow the groups to adopt many, if any, of the core Agile behaviours.
