Example text

Although processes and tools can provide guidance and support for competent people to work effectively, nothing is more important than solid thinking and meaningful collaboration when it comes to creating something new. But why did the Agile creators put this axiom first? Agile was created as a response to business trends of the 1990s, a time when business leaders focused on process improvement as a panacea for all the ills that afflicted large corporations. A new term was invented, business process reengineering, and the associated acronym BPR became an accepted and widely used buzzword.

Steep hills give the strongest riders the opportunity to break away and outdistance the crowd because they put all the riders under more stress. Hence, this is the tactic elite riders work so hard to perfect, that of timing the breakaway correctly, and then relying on superior conditioning to sustain the immense individual effort required to maintain a lead so that the peloton does not catch up. The greatest riders throughout the history of bike racing have been the very few who could do this consistently.

4 Hence, Agile Innovation suggests that you seek out the 20 percent and consider leaving the rest entirely behind and that you take very seriously the aphorism that in the long run, and even in the short run, every less-than-competent person on your team will end up costing you a lot of time and even more money. This is precisely the reason that Steve Jobs had zero tolerance for any but world-class talent. There was no gray scale for Jobs— either you were A-team material, or you were a complete bozo who should be kept as far away from Apple as possible.
