Group Description

Agile for everyday businesses and people, using everyday technology.

*** Discussion starts on Sunday 11th May 2008 ***

From: Clarke Ching

Hi everyone,

One of the things that really bothers me about Agile - as a movement/revolution - is that a lot of good people are missing out on the benefits of working in an agile way because they're convinced that agile is for rocket scientists.

You and I know that isn't the case ... but that's the widely held perception.

And everyday it gets worse: as Agile keeps getting better and better, it also keeps getting bigger and bigger. This is great news if you're a practitioner, but if you're new to Agile, evaluating it, then Agile looks complicated, confusing and daunting. A lot of businesses miss out on Agile's huge financial benefits. What's worse is that a HUGE number of software development folk and their customers are missing out on all the "lifestyle" benefits of agile. To put that another way: millions of people's lives suck, but they don't need to.

I feel that we - the converted - need to put this right.

If you'd like to do something about it - or at least, discuss the situation further - then I've setup a new yahoo group ...


What will you get out of joining in? Apart from some lively conversation and the chance to make the world a better place ... you'll help make the agile swimming pool bigger for all of us - that's gotta help you make your future mortgage payments.

The one thing you WILL NOT get out of this is the chance to blame "those idiots" for not "getting it".
