A Twitter Blog on Scrum and Kanban

August 29, 2012 — Posted by Al Shalloway

What's a Twitter blog?  Well I just made that up.  As those of you who follow me on Twitter (@alshalloway) know, I sometimes do about 10-15 tweets in response to someone.  Some of us have been having a "twittervation" and I was about to send off about 10 or so tweets when i thought I could just put them here and direct folks on twitter to them - and then everyone would have access to it.

This isn't really a blog, but an interview by Bill Fox I did back in February.  I realized I had only announced it through our email list (please register) and that many may not have ever read it - one of my best ever!

Impressions of Agile 2012

August 20, 2012 — Posted by Al Shalloway

Full disclosure requires me to let you know that this is a very biased, unscientific view as I managed to get through Agile 2012 talking to folks for what felt like 24/7 but never going to a talk at the conference itself. I wasn't actually trying to do this, of course.  There were many great talks.

If You Think You Need to Go Agile but Are Afraid of the Agile Mindset

August 18, 2012 — Posted by Al Shalloway

Many people are afraid of “going Agile” because of things they’ve heard about it. Some of these are either outdated or just misunderstood.  For example, while many have heard that you shouldn’t document and there is no need to do design, I would not say those are Agile beliefs. However, there is quite a diversity of mindsets in the Agile space, some of which to our minds, isn't effective.  Since Scrum is still the most popular Agile method present, the mindset of its thought-leaders is still what many folks hear represents Agile.
