  • Fail fast. Yes, it's a pain, but it's not like the problems are going to fix themselves. The sooner you find the issue, the quicker the fix is likely to come.

  • Well, for starters you double post a message with the heading 'Help For Agile' containing gibberish markup in it, along with an attached document. Only an idiot would open a docx attachment. Your message contains *no* information as to why one should complete your questionnaire, or what you plan to do with the results. You then post the same document 5 days later, as if nobody say...

  • Can the moderators please remove this person from the group? They are posting junk, and not contributing to the discussion. Mark --- In scrumdevelopment@^$1, wrote: > > > Hi, Please answer the agile questionnaire. Detail raised in the Questionnaire.Thank You .Good Luck. >

  • Lol! We just may have to cancel the conference, and start planning the Waterfall 2014 Conference, which will take place in 2019. --- In scrumdevelopment@^$1, wrote: > > well, its just that we had a few delays in our project, but according to the latest estimates from the PMO, the 2006 conference is on schedule for q3 > > > > Sent from Windows Mail > > > > From: Ron Jeffries > Sent...

  • Bah! Waterfall rules, and is proudly supported by a who's-who of software development luminaries, including Ken Schwaber, Mike Cohn, Ron Jeffries, Robert Martin, Mary Poppendieck, Jim Highsmith, Ward Cunningham, Alistair Cockburn, Kent Beck, Michael Feathers, Scott Ambler, and others! http://www.waterfall2006.com/ Happy Friday.

  • Oh, please. Our start and end dates are not fictional. When we start pre-planning, i.e. building the feature backlog from the approved project charter, the project officially starts. When the (final) changes are rolled into production, the project ends. Any followup work (e.g. enhancements, bug fixes) is performed as a separate project. I agree that one can not set a realistic end...

  • The Standish Chaos Report only allows for three categories: - Resolution Type 1, or project success: The project is completed on-time and on-budget, with all features and functions as initially specified. - Resolution Type 2, or project challenged: The project is completed and operational but over-budget, over the time estimate, and offers fewer features and functions than...

  • Right. It's the over budget, and over time criteria that gets me steaming. The last large project I worked on was over by 250% on time and budget, but the project was considered a success because it finally got us off our legacy mainframe, and allowed us to business functionality in the future that couldn't be done on the old system. The team that created the initial estimates and...
