I was quite interested in Peter DeYoe’s recent blog post comparing Agile development to the P90X fitness program he just started. Riffing off the slogan “Decide, Commit, and Succeed,” DeYoe winds up with
Decide if Agile is right for your organization. Commit to the principles of Agile and deny your urge to fall back on old habits. And if you make it to the third or fourth sprint, a new, healthier paradigm for software development fitness will emerge and lead you to Success.
I like it! But I have a different model for Agile adoption, which is highly influenced by the life example of my darling Drsweetie.
