As an IT or Business professional, have you heard about Agile, Lean or Six Sigma, COBIT, DevOps, PMBOK, or other frameworks, standards or methodologies which are used either in your organization or in ones you know? The answer is: Yes, of course, we use those either in full or in part, in different departments, and sometimes they do not work together… perhaps they even overlap. Another question is WHY these frameworks, standards or methodologies are chosen? This question is harder to answer: maybe because some professionals learned or even got certified in them, implemented them and saw success in other companies, or perhaps they were recommended by external consulting companies, or maybe even found them on Google! The answer to this question is not always obvious, and to be honest, the choice of management practices such as frameworks, standards or methodologies in IT departments are sometimes random. The hardest question to answer is: how to implement these management practices in the context of individual organizations, and how to align them with good internal practices and existing culture?
