The Death of Agile Courses
Jurgen Appelo

Since 5+ decades there’s evidence, that Taylor’s view of work was right just in a quite narrow, limited scope (manual, repetitive, rather simple). Until today, most (economic.) Organizations are build around his views — or what was drawn from them.

Since ~4 decades Complexity- & Systems-Science teaches us, that ‘planning’ (Analysis, Reductionism) has a limited scope. Still, most Organizations are build around methods that treat the future as a (quite) predictable thing.

Since ~2 decades there’s agile. Still, most…

I don’t believe that agile — excluding lip service or ‘adoptions’ in slapdash manner — will become normal soon. Changes of basic assumptions take multiple decades, if not ‘generations’ to happen. And until that day, we’ll have a agile courses industry, making money based on the inevitable delay that occurs before basic assumptions change.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
