Challenges to DIY Agile

Many teams have tried to implement MAHD methods by researching agile and even using the tools we provide on this site. Some have been very successful, but overall most struggle due to one of the following reasons:

  • There is a strong voice in the company that guides them to focus on current agile for SW methods such as Scrum
  • Only one or two people learn the methods and then try to implement without getting everyone on board
  • There is an attempt to use a small part of the MAHD Framework so their results are very limited or they give up
  • The teams struggle to adapt specific elements such as user stories or Iteration Plans, so fall back to their traditional methods
