Earlier this year I have had the privilege to interview with more than ten companies. I found people very willing to discuss their approach to agile, what they were proud of and where they were struggling. I am very happy I started a position at a great company but I will miss my encounters with various species of agile in the wild. I learned a lot. My journey confirmed every company has their own culture and their own version of scrum. More interesting are common challenges. Some expected and some surprising. One persistent theme was silos.
