Clean Agile: accounting vs. agile

Hi Robert

One of the obstacles I've seen with agile adoption in the enterprise is around capital management. Older enterprises long ago developed capital management processes that deal will large capex projects and long delivery cycles, not shorter incremental delivery. I've seen similar challenges with cloud adoption where enterprises are reluctant to take on monthly opex expenses in the cloud vs. large capital expenses up front that can be depreciated over time.

Do you have any suggestions on how to overcome these capital management challenges?

Cheers,
Greg

As far as I can tell, the book does not touch on this topic. The book's focus is mostly on the foundations of Agile and I think Bob purposely avoided going beyond the core concepts, the ones that directly relate to agile software development. This kind of question takes you outside that core circle and into the realm of what's becoming known in the industry as Business Agility and more specifically related to your question, Agile Finance and Budgeting.

Thanks for the links Julilu.

Yeah, I'm not surprised that Bob left this out of his books. Just wondering if he had any tips on how to manage this aspect of agile adoption.

Cheers,
Greg
