    Ciao Francesco,
    as you may have noticed during your talk at Roma3 University, I’m quite a start-Up “enthusiast”! I’m involved in start-Up network & business and I’m trying to understand as much as I can about this economic system.
    After your seminar, I’m thinking about the lack of care given to “team organization” in circumstances like the very early stage of a software start-up.
    Young developers and entrepreneurs who choose to create their own business (instead to build his career in a big company), are often completely unskilled about team building(and working) and generally decide to set-up everything in an undefined “democratic” way.
    Maybe, if the appropriate importance is given to this issue, we could agree that an “agile” approach could work very well in this kind of situations.
    What do you think about it?

    An “agile” approach does not propose/impose a “team organization”. It requires consciousness. If we agree on that, sure and agile approach could work well in that kind of situations.
    As for software start-ups… take a look at this Focus on how these guys collect funding for their project.
