Agile Transformation: Work Practices Differences Part 1

Typing “Agile Development” into Google search brings up 123,000,000 results. Sift through the first 5 pages, spend 3.5 hours reading through webpages that all seem to be the exact same copy of each other with cosmetic edits, or worse, websites that say the exact opposite, and be nowhere nearer to understanding what an agile transformation is. Been there done that.

In my opinion, finding what to do is hard, yet finding how to do it properly is even harder. There are ton of articles out there which can tell you what you should be doing as a ScrumMaster, but not much of them will tell them how to do it right. Why? Because we all reckon in order to advise how things can be right, you have to experiment within the contexts.
