Welcome to the Cargo Cult Agile Checklist Download Page

You want to know the state of agility in your organization? Here we go: Download the checklist, distribute it generously among your colleagues, and run a quick poll. It will only take 5 minutes of their time–and then analyze their feedback. If the average number of checkboxes marked is higher than nine, then you are probably practicing cargo cult agile in one form or another.

If running the cargo cult agile survey is the ‘inspection,’ then consider adapting your approach to being agile by kicking-off a discussion among the stakeholders of your organization’s endeavor.

Run an analysis based on their feedback and assess your situation:

  • 0 to 2 boxes: I’d like to talk to you how you managed to do that. Care for a Zoom-call?
  • 3 to 5 boxes: Well done! You’re on the right track.
  • 6 to 8 boxes: There is room for improvement, a lot of improvement.
  • 9 to 14 boxes: If you haven’t recently embarked on your journey to becoming a learning organization, it is probably time to change your approach.
  • 15 to 20 boxes: Okay, start over with becoming agile–it is not working in your organization’s current set-up.
  • 21 to 25 boxes: You either haven’t started going agile yet. Or you are sugar-coating command-and-control structures to look “agile.” It won’t work, by the way.
