Roots of Agile

Agile initially started as an approach to suit startup and lean situations.

Agile always assumes a very small team that:

  • Must be conscious of their burn rate (effort)
  • Produce value quickly
  • Fail fast to avoid wasting time & money
  • Highly committed (to deliver outcomes)
  • Highly and possibly uniquely skilled
  • Work on the priorities

Realistically, startups can’t afford the specialist skill that is the Business Analyst (BA).
