The State of Agile
November 19, 2010
The Agile Scout blog has put out a call for comments on The State of Agile. Ten commentators were invited to contribute. Their musings are being posted on an ongoing basis, starting from the 26th of October. Contributors were asked the following questions:
• What is your background?
• How has Agile changed in terms of methods, philosophies, ideologies, etc
• Where is Agile going in the future?
Tobias Mayer had a particularly eloquent response:
“…We are marching, or perhaps more accurately slipping and sliding towards a new paradigm. Agile is part of a ripple that when combined with other ideas and practices will collectively become a tidal wave of change.”
“So how do I see Agile? I see it as one stepping stone (a particularly beautiful one) on a great journey towards a business world that is more caring, loving, respectful and altogether more joyous. Agile will meld into the ideas of many other movements, and we’ll all move forward towards the greater goal, seeking similarities and finding ways to collaborate, innovate and reconceive the way we work.”
