Heh! This is the only "methodology" that actually works. It's the one
used by Edison:
"Results? Why man, I gotten a lot of results. I know 50,000 things
that won't work."
What I want to know is how I can become a Certified Agile Software
If you want to become an Agile Software Signer (ASS), then look no
further than here:
I like the "Responding to change over following a plan" item. I'm
going to try that next time I get asked for a plan and a schedule.
I'm also going to try this, "You don't need documentation - see - because
the software actually works. If you'll just read the code then you'll
see what it's supposed to do."
I can't stop laughing while I think of doe-eyed engineers hugging
each other after the daily Agile Software Review, and wistfully
recalling the time they all went off to the ski-lodge to formulate
What a hoot! I guess I won't fit in to the "agile" environment.
When the correction first comes, we tend to underreact. While we do not
like the surprise, we tend to think of it as maybe a one-time thing.
Things, we believe, will soon get back to normal. We do not scale back
our expectations sufficiently. It apparently takes years for this to
work itself out. - John Mauldin
