I hope I’m not the only reader who remembers the Highlander movie & television series. Duncan McLeod was an immortal amongst others who was fighting to be the last remaining immortal. In each episode, there was inevitably a decapitation or two as the immortal population was reduced to the final one.
I use the symbolism of the Highlander to remind myself of several aspects of agile project management. The first relates to focused teams and our earnest effort to reduce all levels of multi-tasking. The second reminder is the subject of what I want to explore in this article—the notion of investing in a single team to create a working model for your agile adoption efforts.
