Agile is Not Enough

Taking DevOps to the Next Level


Agility is critical for companies trying to keep up with customer expectations and emerging business trends.

By adopting an agile approach, software development teams can:

  • Create new products and services rapidly
  • Transform processes
  • Help reinvent the organization

But agile teams can stumble as they interact with and depend on others, and no one approach or tool, or technology will solve an issue. Instead, it becomes a matter of anticipating and mitigating these choke points in the organization.

There are three impediments that in particular work against agile in most organizations: rigid architecture, poor talent management, and lack of a product mindset. In this article, MIT SMR: Agile is Not Enough, MIT’s team explores each of these issues and introduces ways organizations can overcome them. Access today, learn how to avoid and recover from common pitfalls, and create a mindset shift and culture that truly drive a DevOps transformation.
