carnival of the agilists, 17-aug-06

Welcome to the August 17th edition of the Carnival of Agilists – providing you with a commented digest on what’s been said in the agile blogsphere during the last two weeks.

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

  • How can you know whether an interviewee will be able to work in an agile team? Johanna Rothmann suggests using auditions as a key element of the interview.
  • Do the agile values and practices promote the mental state of “flow”? David Hoehn begins a new blog by suggesting they do.

Working software over comprehensive documentation

  • Obie Fernandez challenges more of us to turn the dial up to ten, by committing to certain quality levels in our contracts.

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

  • How can you keep your project’s sponsors involved for the long haul? Johanna Rothman reminds us to show progress frequently to keep everyone on their toes.

Responding to change over following a plan
