“It has been 10 years since the Manifesto for Agile Software Development was written. It is time to celebrate, reflect, and look forward. To this end, I have invited a set of experienced people from various backgrounds to join in celebration and dialog on the manifesto’s 10th anniversary. It is you who have created the agile community. Join us, therefore, in the dialog and the celebration.” – Signed, Alistair Cockburn
[Per 10yearsagile.org] – On Feb 12, 2011 at Snowbird (A COUPLE DAYS AWAY!) a few dozen experienced people from various backgrounds will meet join in dialog and celebration on the 10th year anniversary of the writing of the manifesto. Our starter challenge is to address these three questions, which have deliberately been chosen to be broader than agile development:
- What problems in software or product development have we solved (and therefore should not simply keep re-solving)?
- What problems are fundamentally unsolvable (so therefore we should not keep trying to “solve” them)?
- What problems can we sensibly address – problems that we can mitigate either with money, effort or innovation? (and therefore, these are the problems we should set our attention to, next.)
Let’s hope the outcome will be fantastic! We here at AgileScout.com are a proud sponsor of this epic event!
