Every time I go to speak at the conference, I can see the same pattern repeating, over and over again. When I ask the audience to raise their hands if their companies are Agile, it’s rare for anyone not to do so. Apparently, working this way became a new standard.

It is a good thing, without a doubt.

There’s a caveat, though. When I do some consulting projects with the very same companies, I see an odd dichotomy. They have Agile on their banners, their people pride with medieval-style job names, and almost everybody around has some sort of relevant certification listed in their LinkedIn profile. At the same time, these companies can hardly experience any tangible business outcomes out of Agile, even though they often invest considerate effort and money to get there.

Now, that makes no sense.

In this short e-book, I share my view on why that happens and give you specific tools to improve the situation.

Read it and make Agile great again!

No part of this book may be used or reproduced in any manner whatsoever without written permission except in the case of brief quotations embodied in critical articles, reviews, or presentations. For information contact: lukaszolczyk.com lukasz@leanbusiness.pl Acknowledgements Writing this book would’ve been impossible without invaluable support, assistance, and inspiration of many individuals and organizations, including: Simon Carty, Halina Tańska-Bednarczyk, Adrian Lander, Beata Fil, Andrei Gordienkov, Katarzyna Pieter, Agnostic Agile, Agile Austria, Agile Portugal, and all of my clients. Thank you. Foreword This book is intended to be as short and specific as possible. Obviously, this goal made it much harder for me to write it. Having read dozens of books that could be summed up on a single page, I strongly believe we should invest our time wisely. The environmental impact – if someone decides to print it – is important as well. I assume my readers have some understanding of how their own – or typical – business works and have some insight into Agile concepts. If it’s not the case for you – that might be even better. Once you get to learn these things, you will look at them from different perspective. I hope this short piece will inspire you to look at your business, team, even yourself from another angle. The rules are universal and can be applied to every single creative endeavor. Have fun! Lukasz Olczyk Introduction Every time I go to speak at the conference, I can see the same pattern repeating, over and over again. When I ask the audience to raise their hands if their companies are Agile, it’s rare for anyone not to do so. Apparently, working this way became a new standard. It is a good thing, without a doubt. There’s a caveat, though. When I do some consulting projects with the very same companies, I see an odd dichotomy. They have Agile on their banners, their people pride with medieval- style job names, and almost everybody around has some sort of relevant certification listed in their LinkedIn profile. At the same time, these companies often work in strikingly inefficient way, balancing on the edge of stereotypic corporate stupidity. They can hardly see any tangible business outcomes out of Agile, even though they often invest considerate effort and money to get there. Now, that makes no sense. How could that happen? How can it be, that lightweight and reasonable approach turns into yet another monstrous combination of processes? After all, they did transform to Agile, so it should all be better now, right? Wrong. Lightweight turns into sumo, as their successful transformations hide a huge blob of FAT within: Failed Agile Transformation. In this short e-book, I’ll share my view on the issue and give you some tools to make it better. Everything is based on professional experience of mine and a few of my esteemed colleagues. I am not the oracle of ancients, I’m just making world better, step by step. Contents The book consists of three parts. Getting FAT First, I’ll explain why things go that wrong, that often. In most cases, it’s just lack of perspective, coupled with old habits and misunderstanding of the big picture. It is exactly how people get overweight. Small things accumulating over time. Avoiding FAT If you’re just starting your Agile adventure, you might want to make it better from the start. I will cover how to focus the transformation, what to really care about, and how to make sure it makes a difference for the whole company. This part will be specific and oddly prescriptive – there’s a reason for that. It’s the actual framework I recommend to my clients. Trimming FAT Sometimes you just need to face the music. Given what I mentioned in the introduction, your Agile implementation might be subpar. You can live with that and no one can blame you. After all, that’s the default choice – one actually made by majority. You can also do something to make it better, regardless of your position and role. This part will give specific guidelines of how to burn the FAT down to athletic lean.
