When Agile is NOT Agile (Part 2)

Picking up where we left off in August...

Last month we started breaking new ground by formulating a definition of Agility, and identifying how the practices associated with various Agile methods support and enhance that definition.

This month we will pick up where we left off as we start the analysis of what happens to the various facets of our definition when things are changed.

How much modification is possible before Agile is not Agile anymore? Whether it be hybrid versions, people falling back into old habits, or kicking out the legs of the proverbial stool, the end result tends to be judged as a failure of Agile.

You don't need to have attended the August meeting to participate in this one. In fact, an influx of new viewpoints at this juncture would be just what we need.

    During a discussion this afternoon about the difference between Agile and Scrum and Scrum and Agile (yes, that's how I meant to write it), a colleague stumbled on this blog: Check out the definition, it seems remarkably close to the definition we were forming last month... http://www.agilemodeling.com/essays/agileSoftwareDevelopment.htm

    I think we should continue the discussion from the August 23rd meeting as our topic.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
