"agile doesn't work" doesn't work: open letter to an IT weasel

i have a hard time accepting that "agile doesn't work." "agile" is a bullshit word in and of itself. the failure is yours, whatever path you followed to it. my question then is: what did you do to prevent failure or improve upon your ability to deliver?

secondarily, did your old process "work"? my guess is no, given your attempt to use another process or methodology. but i would congratulate you on recognizing that failure and experimenting with positive change.

quote of the day-or-so

[My son] broke a CFL on the floor of his carpeted room last week. After learning the clean-up and dangers involved, CFLs have now been banned from this house from all but bathroom light fixtures. I already hated the light from those bulbs. I never want to expose my children to the innards if those bulbs again.
