Agile is already mainstream. And it is business too with all the good and all the bad which come in package. We have coaches, certified masters, thought-leaders and self-proclaimed gurus. We have methods, approaches and techniques all over the place. There are plenty of people telling us why we should get into agile bandwagon and how we should progress once we’re there.
And with all this stuff there’s a lot of bullshit too.
What I see very often is people selling it as the best advice. Then I’m all “Come on, you don’t think I’m going to buy this stuff, do you?” But somehow people are buying it and repeating it all the time. So this will be my call on the subject – pointing agile-related bullshit. I will go iconoclastic, become controversial, cause some stir and (hopefully) launch a good discussion.
For the next two weeks on Software Project Management we’ll have Carnival of Agile Bullshit.
