Take the Agile Warrant of Fitness
Frequently asked questions:
By product we mean a software product developed by your teams, that supports your organisation's products and services.
Organisation should be taken to mean at the IT level, some statements do refer wider than IT, however we are surveying with an IT focus.
For this survey we are focused on Agile delivery. We plan to incorporate technical practices in further versions of our WOF tool set.
Yes, primarily because most organisations do relate to these Scrum terms. If your organisation is not using Scrum we would prefer you either respond with “neither agree or disagree” or consider the question from an analogous perspective. For example, you may not have Scrum Masters, but there may be personnel in your organisations who perform similar roles.
At the risk of leading you to an answer, if a statement is completely true (in your assessment) then Strongly agree may be appropriate if on the other hand, you agree in general but can think of an instance or areas where it is not completely true, Agree may be more appropriate. Similarly with disagreement.
How do I answer if our organisation is two-speed/multi-modal, i.e. combination of agile and projects?
There are no right or wrong answers. You may find that you agree with the statement for the “Agile component” but strongly disagree for the remainder of your organisation in which case you may choose to say you disagree overall.
One rule of thumb is 3 - 10 team members. There are other arguments that larger teams can be successful. If you think that your teams are not working due to their size, regardless of the quantity, you would most likely disagree with the statement.
Neither agree nor disagree may be appropriate or, you may ‘somewhat’ lean one way or the other.
Your answer would be “Neither agree nor disagree”
