Does your company consider itself to do agile development?
Is the Software you produce delivered to a huge customer base?
Have you ever wondered if you and your organization really follow the practices of the agile manifesto?
If yes then this is a good read for you. At TOPdesk we reached the size of a company that can no longer be labeled small. With over 600 employees across 14 countries we list ourselves as a mid size company. Although we are not a large-scale enterprise yet I figured we are already facing the downsides such an organization comes with.
Before I go into more detail about that, I would like to briefly state the agile manifesto’s core values before I set them into contrast with the practices in our company.
