Thank you for taking the time to complete our pin-board activity at Agile Australia recently. Your contribution has helped us to consolidate a view on how Australian organizations leverage innovation, technology and agility within their organizations to create value.
Even a cursory glance at the pin-board highlights a stark contrast between one question around a company's ability to ship code quickly and all the rest. Participants in general have reported that they had a moderate to high degree of confidence in their ability to introduce new ideas, to focus on customer needs, to create change, and to fail fast, each of which suggests that these organizations are fertile ground for agile methodologies.
However, many participants indicated an inability to ship quality code quickly and reliably. This suggests that no matter how well-intentioned these organizations are, fundamental constraints still exist in delivery and execution.
