I was delighted to discover today that Andy Lawrence has started a blog – and I was even more delighted when I read his first few posts. Andy has managed to put into words something I’ve held off saying, and he’s neatly expressed it in the same terms as the agile manifesto:
“I am uncovering better ways of delivering valuable software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work I have come to value: applying agile values over following Agile practices
That is, while there is value in the item on the right, I value the item on the left more”
Many of you will know Andy: he was one of the original AgileNorth committee members, and he and I collaborated on our muda workshops a while back. Give him a look, at http://learningtobeagile.blogspot.com/.
