My quest for agile frameworks, ways-of-working or methods is finished. In 1986 Hirotaka Takeuchi and Ikujiro Nonaka published in the Harvest Business Review their article ‘The New New Product Development Game’. This was the starting point for the development of Scrum by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. Some years ago, you could say “Scrum is agile” and ask “is Agile Scrum?” Now we know there is much more flesh on the bones. On the other hand, you could say I haven’t found the silver bullet and that’s the reason why I added common sense as the final number.
The first official version of the my corresponding article ‘A bird’s eye view on the agile forest‘ was published in the PM World Journal in November 2019 (award-winning featured 2019 paper). At that moment it contained 50 frameworks. A translated version with around 70 frameworks has been published in Russian by the Magazine of COBHET (SOVNET), the Russian Project Management Association, with the title “ОБЩЕЕ ПРЕДСТАВЛЕНИЕ О ГИБКИХ МЕТОДОЛОГИЯХ” .In October 2020 a second version (‘A new bird’s eye view on the agile forest‘) was published in the PM World journal, now with around 80 frameworks. This ‘A new new bird’s eye view on the agile forest‘ version reached the number of 100 and that’s enough (for now).
