Agile?

Clark Quinn

Last Friday’s #GuildChat was on Agile Development. Fast forward a couple of decades, and the Agile Manifesto puts a stake in the ground for software engineering. Whether it’s Allen’s SAM or Ger Driesen’s Agile Learning Manifesto , we’re seeing a call for rethinking the old waterfall model of design. And we certainly need change. Iterative development and testing allows the specs to change after initial experience.

And I also think a culture for agility comes from a different ‘space’ than does a rabid focus on numerics. I received some feedback on my post on Organizational Knowledge Mastery. The claim was that if you trusted to human sensing, you’d be only able to track what’s become common knowledge, and that doesn’t provide the necessary competitive advantage.

So it’s plausible that you’d want to change, and if you do, you’d like to know how it’s going. Culture change is a journey, not an event, after all ;).
