With the completion of this chapter, you are ready to create your own Agile adoption strategy that focuses on the business values and smells of your organization. This is not a one-shot deal—remember to be agile about your adoption. Measure your progress against your goals and revisit them regularly. Modify your strategy as you learn more about each practice and your own environment. It is natural to make a few wrong turns, but fail fast and quickly recover.
For the remainder of this book, we dig into the details of each practice. There is a pattern for each practice mentioned in the mappings that describes the practice, what problems it solves, how others have successfully adopted and adapted practices in various environments, and what missteps they have taken upon adoption so you can watch out for them.
