Moving Agile Forward

Rethinking What’s Next in Software Development

Al Shalloway is an acknowledged thought leader in how we design and develop software. In this post, he begins the conversation about where we are headed next. It seems that everyone is in software development these days and most agree that we need to improve. Al notes that the original manifesto mentions the Agile Manifesto mentions “the team 17 times, the customer 3 times, business twice and management not at all.” But rather than impaling the sacred Agile Manifesto cow, he offers us a place to start the conversation with his personal manifesto.

I think this is a wonderful place to start a conversation about where we go from here. If you have an opinion about how the software business needs to change, I encourage you to read this post.

Background and the Agile Manifesto.I have been asked several times to help in the rewrite of an Agile Manifesto.  After having been involved in Snowbird 10 (the reunion of some of the original Agile Manifesto authors along with some others from the Lean/Kanban community) I realized there is no “Agile” community. Rather we have many sub-communities that are so diverse it is hard to think of them as being under one umbrella.

Seeing Value in Everyday Work

Who is managing the value?

“Even though the people we manage are quite busy, the workflow itself is starting and stopping and starting and stopping.”

Alan Shalloway has a great, no nonsense way of communicating. This 7 minute video show why so many organizations have a disconnect between the work they are doing and the things that improve the quality and timeliness of their delivery. I’d love to hear your thoughts… does Al’s message ring true in your world? I know it sure does in mine! 🙂
