Re: [ljc] "I've never been a true believer in the Agile method"

If you need to stick a bunch of nails to a wall a screwdriver won't be of much help, however, it doesn't make sense to say "I don't believe in screwdrivers", more like "a screwdriver is a tool that doesn't help me solve my particular problem".

Agile is a tool, not a religion, and it will be useful or not depending on your particular problem.

Cheers,
Abraham

Thanks to Mani for pointing me to Ben's Fenymann talk at http://www.infoq.com/presentations/Feynman-Way.

And thank you to Ben Evans for say "I've never been a true believer in the Agile method."

I want to echo what he said for my self: "I don't believe in the Agile method."

I feel much better for that.  Is there anybody else out there who wants to join the heresy?
