How to move away from wagile

By Jeremy Jarrell & Tommy van Schaik

20 years after the birth of the agile manifesto, agile transformations remain a risky challenge for organisations, and many end up in a waterfall-agile hybrid known as “wagile.” Contrary to traditional thinking, adopting a hybrid of the two methodologies is worse than just using one. 

Join Pluralsight authors Jeremy Jarrell and Tommy van Schaik as they break down the most prominent agile anti-patterns within organisations. You’ll learn:

  • How to identify indicators of agile anti-patterns that emerge as agile transformation progress

  • How to effectively address these signs from each layer of the organisation

  • Solutions you can apply to solve these persistent agile pitfalls

Tommy van Schaik

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Tommy van Schaik found out early on that his natural habitat was between business and IT. After graduating with his masters of Business Process Management & IT, he started his career as a Dutch Airforce Officer. After a beautiful ex-pat adventure in the United States, he switched to civilian life and moved back to Europe to continue his career in the Aerospace and Defence domain. Currently, he is working as an IT project manager for the NATO Communication and Information Agency. If he has any spare time left between family, work and being a Pluralsight author, Tommy tries to stay fit either in the ring or on the basketball court.

Tommy is of the firm belief that the agile is the result of a perfect storm in which products (software) became more complex, while at the same time, the explosion of the Internet allowed multiple ideas to compound into a more effective and efficient way to create products.
