Most Agile frameworks are inspired by the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. They have been developed based on practical experience with small software projects. Although most of the values and principles are valid at a larger scale, organizational transformation requires senior leadership support when rapid and hard decisions are made and acting on feedback if the outcome is not as intended. This book is a Project Manager’s analysis of a few lessons learned during the COVID crisis, lessons that can be applied to increase the likelihood of Agile adoption in large organizations.
