During the Agile Alliance meeting at OOPSLA, I volunteered to look
into forming an Agile Alliance structure within a non profit
organization. The Agile Alliance non profit organization (aanpo)
would be formed within the next month or so, and I requested
everyone's help in commenting on my direction so that I get it right.
During November, I'll be meeting in Chicago at ObjectMentor with Bob
Martin and anyone else who has the time to formalize this group.
Based on discussion to date, my inclinations, the time box set in our
OOPSLA meeting, the time box set by impending Rational activities,
and a bias toward agility, I'm including an initial proposal for
getting aanpo off the ground. I've tried to be as simple as possible,
but I've still thrown in some details when I think of them. You can
review the proposal at http://www.controlchaos.com/aanpov2.pdf
I'll be including you on the discussions regarding the aanpo. Feel
free to join in.
