Ok. I had fun creating this poorly crafted photoshop. But when I came upon a blog that talked about misunderstood IT words the first thing that popped into my head was:
“These kids with gold and diamond grills in their mouths.”
I’m sure they would say that they dont’ misuse gold and diamonds. We (the public) just don’t understand them.
So is “Agile” a misunderstood word? I recently had coffee with a fellow Agile coach, Andrew Fuqua (@andrewmfuqua), and we talked about the necessity for Agile-thought leaders to continue to blog, continue to write, continue to educate. There is a ton of noise out there. Not all of it positive, nor really informative.
As Agile continues to grow it is imperative that Agile bloggers continue to write about what Agile is, and what it isn’t. They need to continue to write about ways that Agile is evolving and how to apply Agile to not only software development, but possibly, your personal life!
Agile means a lot of different things to different people. As we move into 2011, let’s continue to write about Agile, the basics, and how to pragmatically apply it to bring value to your business.
So what is “Agile” mean to you?

See how businesses need to change in this very interesting talk by Gary Vaynerchuk. A very influential person within the realm of social media and entrepreneurship.
He’s the author of ‘Crush It’ and a dynamic public speaker. FYI – Talk is a little rough on the language. You’ve been warned!
