I felt the need to tweet the other day.
“Why do so many use trad methods to influence agile change? I prefer to talk to people, get their input, iterate and continuously publish…”
and it seems to have struck a chord.
The ever growing popularity of agile is creating huge need. Need for experienced people to help organisations start doing things better. Because of this emerging massive need we have a surplus of Agile methodologists all selling their own brand.
Often the drive to install the method means people forget people and interactions over and above process.
I recommend this post, It describes how an agilist sees the usefulness of methods…vs how traditional thinkers view it.
