Chapter 23. The Path Forward > Sharing Best Practices

Sharing Best Practices

If we aren’t supposed to follow others’ paths, how do best practices fit into the picture? Just as there is no one path to follow, there is no one set of best practices across all organizations.

When I’m asked to describe “best practices” that other organizations are using to become more agile, I give examples. However, I always provide the relevant context of the other organizations so that the people who are asking can evaluate whether it would be sensible to adopt a similar approach in their organization. Even when scaling up within a single organization, we need to be cautious about universally applying best practices. Many organizations try to describe what a successful Scrum team is doing, capture it, and then institutionalize it as a best practice. Doing so can be harmful, because these are individual team approaches that may not work for other teams.
