    Talking about simplicity when I met a director at Google , he was telling us that “Google do not release anything from Fri thru Mon”. Unless you are either Larry Page or Sergey Brin , even the VP or CIO can’t do a release on Fri or week-end . If a scrum team desperately needs to do a release on Fri and comes up with a request they are immediately marked RED.

    How many E-Commerce organizations are following a similar rule ? Why can’t companies adopt to a more mature approach where the expectations are set in stone across the company.

    This is not something that was achieved in a day or two at Google. It was a culture developed from top down . I guess organizations need to take this as a case study and implement and see the results.

      Excellent point Divakar! Moving from “doing” to “being” agile does require organization, level culture shift, and support from management. Thank you very much for taking the time to comment!
