Once the company makes the decision to give agile project management a try, it is critical not to turn the implementation into a “big bang” project. Instead the company should select a small (and relatively easy) project from its “innovative projects portfolio” and build a team to execute the project. This will require assigning the right cross-functional members to ensure the team is capable of self-managing. Once the team has been formed, it will need formal training to learn about agile techniques. Providing the team with an experienced Agile coach will ensure a significantly higher success rate.
