This IDC study, written for CIOs and VP- and director-level executives, identifies and corrects 15 of the most common misconceptions about Agile. Overcoming these misconceptions can accelerate your organization's digital transformation by leading to better choices about approaches to project delivery. While most firms recognize the need to improve agility to compete in this era of digital transformation (DX), some continue to be reluctant to use Agile for many types of projects because of its perceived higher risks and lower quality."IT leaders that fail to question their organization's long-held beliefs about Agile will find themselves lagging behind as competitors that have achieved expertise in Agile move to the next levels of agility," says Susan Martin, adjunct analyst with IDC's Research Network. "They risk hindering their organizational transformation by unnecessarily leaving entire segments of their organization behind, forfeiting the opportunity to achieve enterprise agility."
