Did you ever work in waterfall managed projects? Coming to a company that introduced agile just recently, chances are you will recognise plenty of behavioural patterns. Playing the waterfall game to pretend to be agile is called an agile theatre.

The phenomenon of this agile theater is not new. And in fact, a misunderstanding of fundamental principles in agile is one of the major issues with the introduction of this approach. Going full agile requires a fundamental change of culture, a lot of trust and self-sufficiency, that most companies cannot find easily, in particular coming from traditional industry best practices and established waterfall procedures. Most often the introduction of agile methods for project- and product management ends with the introduction of new language.

In this matter, smharter.com was kind enough to collect and publish a collection of translation helpers, to help you identify an agile theatre. The terms and their translations will help you identify agile theater much quicker.

Mobility Features

Die Automobilbranche schaut ja schon länger auf die Erfolgsstories der Softwareindustrie. Mieten statt kaufen, monatliche Einnahmen statt einmaliger Kosten. Für die Standheizung nur im Winter bezahlen zu müssen scheint dem ein- oder anderen Kunden ja auch noch nachvollziehbar zu sein. Wie der Benutzer @_uni_corn_ auf Twitter berichtet, kann es allerdings sein, dass Skoda den Ansatz überzieht.

Ich finde Skoda übertreibt das mit den kostenpflichtigen Zusatzfeatures etwas…
