Excellent observations that with scale & complexity, specialization is a necessity. And that an agile Dev team doesn't make an organization agile: it's just a tiny bit of a greater whole. In either case, in addition to VSM you also need constraints management (/).

Douglas McGregor's most important legacy was neither Theory X nor Theory Y. It was his insistence that managers question their core assumptions about human nature, and that they see how these mental models lead to managerial practices.

a consultant's job is to make the complex navigable and not blame their client when they have trouble's with the navigation. It's a take the blame and give the credit kind of job.

Even to SEE the system, we have to change (management) thinking.

the measure for team productivity should not change whether you are doing Scrum or Kanban or whatever. You don't want to measure how well you are adhering to a framework/method you want to measure how well you are doing creating value.

Whilst looking at dozens of charts a few times a year (OKRs, KPIs, etc) in quarterly reviews is better than not looking at all, looking at just a few continuously is better. Which ones matter? That is an important question for your organization to know.

The brilliance of Dr. W. Edwards Deming (1900-1993): “…if management stopped demotivating their employees then they wouldn't have to worry so much about motivating them.”

There's one way to do Scrum: as described in the Scrum Guide. If you do something different, you are not doing Scrum. There are some flavors of Kanban, even the Scrum Folks have one, and endless differing implementations. Just keep it in mind, when talking abt. adaptability.

Folks, seriously, , just like and , collects every byte of data about you that it possibly can, from your location, to your calendar, to your contacts. Everything. Use instead. Signal only collects minimal data and deletes almost all of it.

Absolutely spot on. What most approaches lack, both conventional and agile, is consistent Execution Management, to detect if and when such external factors become an issue if it all.
