Cheaper, Faster Agility

Full Scale agile is a free, open-source guide to switching from traditional work management practices like “waterfall” to more effective ones based on psychology. Written as the training material for “Radical Agilist” Jim Morgan’s coaching practice, it also reflects his 35 years of experience in a wide variety of companies and industries.

Based on that expertise and Jim’s “Pillars of Radical agile,” this Web book starts with three ways to become agile: create your own method (true “self-organizing teams”); adopt Kanban for repetitive, “flowing” work; or adopt Scrum for any kind of development work.

Each differs from standard approaches due to scientific advances, and provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for do-it-yourselfers. Also included is how to adapt the method to your specific needs; coordinate across multiple teams; and transform your entire organization according to the principles of organizational culture change.

The Pillars of Radical agile

Agile was nothing new.

Agility applies to all work.

Don’t train to be agile; practice it.

Don’t hire agile experts; train them.

You don’t need a framework to be agile.

Adopt, then adapt—not the other way around.

A team with a full-time organizer is not “self-organizing.”

You cannot predict the future, so don’t waste time trying.

An agile manager must give up control.
