Many teams are adopting an agile way of working hoping to better serve the IT needs of the business and to develop products that satisfy their customers needs. The organizations are going through agile transformations, implementing Scrum or Kanban and using large-scale agile frameworks like Lean, SAFe, LeSS or DAD. Unfortunately, those transformations do not always live up to the agile promise of delivering better products, faster, at lower costs.
