Guerrilla Agile

How to Adopt Agile in a Company That is Hostile to Agile Methodologies

How many times have you ever gone to a meeting discussing Agile Development, and heard many of the people in the audience talk about how they were "interested in Agile" and were "excited about it" but weren't actually doing Agile?

That is often times because the company they are working for not only doesn't currently use Agile Methods, but is actually hostile to it's adoption. Should you as a budding Agile Practitioner just stand back and study Agile without ever actually doing it? Or is there some other way that you can introduce Agile into that hostile environment?

Guerrilla Agile will give you a set of tools to use in that hostile company.
