I just finished reading a blog about “religious wars” between different Agile schools of thought. Interesting short article, which ends with to striking sentences: (1) Do our customers really care, and (2) it is about the results. True.
Hans Teeuwen (Dutch comedian) would probably say the following about this religious discussion: “It strikes me that Agilists often have a tendency to claim to have the monopoly on the truth.”
Both got me thinking about Jerry’s Rule of Three, which says; “If you can’t think of three things that might go wrong with your plans, then there’s something wrong with your thinking.” Replacing the word plans to solution (i.e. Agile) still makes the Rule of Three valid.
Let’s keep Agile a good practice and not the “best practice”. Let’s focus on the results.
