Agile methods often succeed when organizations focus on 3 basic ideas:

  • The law of Small Teams (Why working in small teams is almost always better than large teams),
  • The law of the Customer (Why creating value for customers is the only thing an organization should focus on), and
  • The law of Networks (Why utilizing networks, not hierarchies, is the way organizations can foster collaboration, learn to innovate, and thrive).

Not all organizations that undertake an Agile transition will see success. A lot depends on the extent to which they buy into Agile culture. But if patterns can be discerned, successful Agile adopters figure out how to make those 3 ideas work for them
