I’m making a list! What are all the reasons you’ve heard that agile/lean/design thinking/okrs/product discovery et al “won’t work here”? Reply with what your company, boss, colleagues say. RT for reach please.

Are you planning to publish the objections and some thoughts on the common ones?

Not all reasons are bullshit. Some are real. Be interested in hearing about those

Ah, I wondered if it was for a talk... me too. From what I've seen Agile is never refused, just modded beyond recognition. :D

The most legitimate cases I've seen (but there is still room to make it work) have been in heavily regulated places. Federal, medical, etc. You have to get early agreement high up the food chain and change big policies/overcome arguments at a different level.

It's not just "this is how we've always done it." It's "a law declares we have to do it this way. And those processes can take 6-12 months." Or, "Our head of compliance is reading the regulation this way, we have to convince them we can do it different w/o violations."

Twitter does not give me enough characters to tell all the reasons I have heard in any sort of efficient manner. 😂

A better question is .. "Why do projects fail?" I think there are 3 categories 1. Human factors ... i.e lack of leadership 2. Systemic factors ... i.e burueacracy 3. Project specific factors ... i.e improper requirements It's a long list ... Thoughts?

That’s a good question but that’s not what I’m asking for right now. I just want the excuses.

I've got a whole long list of excuses I've collected over the years.. Written a bunch of articles about it. I'll bet the excuses are the same

What's the fundamental problem that Agile or lean design seeks to solve? If Agile is the solution ... What's the problem? In design ... We can get tunnel vision. The law of the tool states ... "If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem is a nail"

I agree :) Just trying to understand how this relates to the thread that you jumped into here. It really feels like you're just saying what you want to say and not relating to the topic.

Everyone has a thousand reasons why they don’t want to do the focus part of okrs. One real excuse is they are not instrumented. You will not believe how many folks still don’t have metrics at all.

All the hip young start ups are measuring their nothing, but a lot of the bigger older companies don’t.

Most bigger companies aren’t measuring. Most mid sized companies aren’t measuring.

And most startups are measuring the wrong KPIs.
