About the Book

Every time I go to speak at the conference, I can see the same pattern repeating, over and over again. When I ask the audience to raise their hands if their companies are Agile, it’s rare for anyone not to do so. Apparently, working this way became a new standard.

It is a good thing, without a doubt.

There’s a caveat, though. When I do some consulting projects with the very same companies, I see an odd dichotomy. They have Agile on their banners, their people pride with medieval-style job names, and almost everybody around has some sort of relevant certification listed in their LinkedIn profile. At the same time, these companies can hardly experience any tangible business outcomes out of Agile, even though they often invest considerate effort and money to get there.

Now, that makes no sense.

In this short e-book, I share my view on why that happens and give you specific tools to improve the situation.

Read it and make Agile great again!

About the Author

Lukasz Olczyk
Lukasz Olczyk

You could say I’m into IT for three decades – that is, if geek kid pushing BASIC code into his Atari counts.

I struggled when choosing college, so I needed to make a wise choice. I flipped a coin and ended up being programmer. Then manager. Then the Agile began and (following achieving mastery over two days of training) I became the worst Scrum Master I’ve ever seen. Then (hopefully) a somewhat better Product Owner. Then Agile Coach.

Now I run a small strategic consulting agency, focused on actual business outcomes, not means to an end.

I’m an introvert, yet I love to go on stage and boldly challenge all the misconceptions, myths, and legends that arose around Agile on numerous conferences.

I’m a philosopher of stoicism and essentialism. By pure coincidence (or not), these two streams of thought actually combine to create what I mean by Agile.

I lived in seventeen different places, before deciding to settle in Wroclaw, Poland. For now.

As a passionate petrol-head, I believe jogging to be reserved for lunatics only – which explains why you can see me jogging a few early mornings each week.
