Only You Can Prevent Agile Pandamonium

It’s no surprise that VersionOne wants software teams to use an agile development tool. Preferably theirs. Now they have an ally… and these videos are so LoLs!

Meet Agile Panda, one mischievously destructive giant panda who has very little patience (ok who are we kidding?… NO patience) for those still using notecards, Gantt charts and whiteboards to track their projects.

Robert Holler as PandaAgile Panda’s sole mission is to find agile teams using manual tools and destroy shit around their office – just to prove a point that having a centralized agile project management tool is the only way to go. Of course if you do use old-school agile tools, you’re not likely to see this creature blowing something up in your office. Or nailing you point-blank in the crotch with a paint gun.  But you do risk creating pandemonium (or is it pandamonium?) without that centralized visibility.

I found this series entertaining. Looks like VersionOne has posted a few episodes so far; I’m looking forward to what Agile Panda jacks up next!

Check out the “Agile Pandamonium: Say Yes to the Tool” series on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEFSzPxFMkg&list=PLgtht2Pp8VhZM8iCNd0NUxy7mImbEkWGd[Oh yeah, and I did hear that some of the VersionOne employees involved in filming these things actually got called into HR for the stunts they pulled inside the building! So if you get even a tiny chuckle from these, make it worth their penalty and share the link!]

    Peter – I know you’ve done tons of reviews for agile tools, and those are so helpful. But I am curious, what’s your preference? Do you prefer physical boards, etc, or do you prefer using tools?

    I know different circumstances may call for a different approach, but I’m asking about your personal preference, if you could have it “your way”. :)

    Thanks!
