Probably all of us know or at least have heard at least a dozen of different Agile frameworks. We all know Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban, SAFe, LeSS, SoS, etc. But while working with Agile for more than 8 years I noticed that it is rare that organizations or teams adopt those frameworks fully by the book. And it is natural as different companies work in different markets, have different histories and organizational set-up. So, exceptions to the rules start to be applied which hinders the adoption of those frameworks. So, after witnessing quite a few of these kinds of cases I decided to create a way of empowering organizations to construct an Agile framework that works best for them. In other words, I deconstructed Agile into Lego-like pieces (just following some patterns) and present those pieces for everyone. Now anyone can build up a framework of their own. And not only build it once: you can always scale it, change it, adopt it as you see fit. For me Agility is not following a predefined framework but adopting it for the best result for the company. So, during my speech I will share my experience with DeAgile, what it is, how it works and how to use it. This topic also fits well with the whole theme of this year’s XP "Whole Team Sustainability": in my experience, sustainable teams are the ones who can adapt to changing circumstances, keep growing and change their own way of work. DeAgile is a tool that can help them to be adaptive and dynamically change their working principles to keep on being a stable and sustainable team.
