Agile space travel

If agile works for SpaceX, surely it can work for whatever big, complicated project you're on.

A while back I was working for a company going through an “Agile transformation”. During one of the agile training sessions, a long-time employee spoke up, saying:

Agile is great, but it won’t work for my department. The technology we work on is just too big, and too complicated.

There’s a good chance you may have heard something similar. Perhaps even said something similar.

Then again… Space travel is pretty darned big and complicated. Yet SpaceX has proven that an agile mindset and approach to engineering can have a staggering impact in this industry.

If we can send people into orbit using Agile methodologies, surely your “Enterprise” ERP system can benefit from agile, too.
