Geeks With Blogs
The Life and Times of a Dev Yes, we're really that weird

So, I’ve been missing in action on this blog for quite some time.  I need to rectify that.

Part of the reason I’ve been absent is because I haven’t be able to talk about what I’m working on.  A former client watches my blog rather closely, and although we accomplished many good things together, their culture is such that they really don’t like people to freely express their thoughts (you’ll note my blog posts stopped rather abruptly).  I learned some really important lessons about Agile in the last 3 years, and I think its worthwhile to talk about them.  Sometimes things worked really well, sometimes, they failed failed.  Sometimes that failure was me, sometimes it wasn’t.

I understand Agile better now, and hopefully, what I have to say will guide others through this process and help others understand Agile better.

One thing that I’ve learned is that MANY companies that say they are doing Agile are NOT really doing Agile.  To often, they pick the things they like and don’t follow the process long enough to know what rules they can break, and which ones they shouldn’t.  This is probably the primary reason why Agile fails.

So, expect more posts, especially as I’m flying coast to coast. :)
