Recently I had a conversation with a long time friend that made me realize that in my writing and conversation I often come across as a fanatic. Oppppsssss. Time for me to hit the big red reset button. I’m opinionated and passionate but I also believe that you can do good work even if your not push agile limits. There are two things that I’m dogmatic about:
- Quality – I can’t stand shit, especially shit code.
- Accuracy – I hate mis-information and will pounce on it even when I should know better.
In any case I thought it might help put my core beliefs on the table. If you are working in small achievable chunks and are continuously improving you are Agile. On the other hand you be doing all of the Scrum Practices (Short Iterations, Planning Meeting, Daily Standup, etc.) but are not making any ongoing changes, then you’re not Agile.
