For the last 20 years I have been in the business of helping companies get better at developing software products. I started my career believing that the highly structured processes like CMM Level 5 will magically take care of the software projects woes.

After another 6-7 years of disappointments with RUP the natural progression in my thinking and (coincidently) software development process evolution took me down to the path to Agile. My success with Agile processes has made me a believer in the process.

Across the board I have found some common traits in the teams that failed with their Agile transformation effort. In this article I have shared all of them. Feel free to add more from your experience in the comments below.
