Read about this in a discussion on LinkedIn’s Agile CMMI group.
Nils Malotaux describes Five Processes that businesses use: the official one, the one we think we use, the one we idealize, the one that would be best for us, and the one that someone or something else (vendor, software …) imposes on us.
As coaches, we think we’re bringing the target process, but we might actually be bringing a perceived process . . . and everyone is subject to the process that is imposed by management, or vendor or other circumstances.
I don’t need to run on at length about it, read Nil’s entry. What do you think? Add a comment (here or there).
