This blog will explore agility at the enterprise level, examining how agile principles can be implemented throughout the organization—and in departments other than IT.
Memories of an Agile pioneer
I started my Agile journey in 1985 when after graduating I had the chance to work in research. We had no idea that what we do is Agile, we just did it. Later I moved from Aided Design and Manufacturing to coding, completing the journey from developer to Development Manager and CTO. Along the way I evolved from "cowboy" developer to more structured and disciplined approaches. My first 'encounter' with formal Agile was in 2001 when I discovered XP. As a Software Development Manager and Later Project and Program Manager I used Agile practices in over 50 projects. I learned that Agile is not a silver bullet and is not easy but is not only an option but an option to survive in a continuous changing world.
