Agile is not what you do, its what you are.

Agile is one of those super buzzwords that everyone knows. The problem starts when you ask people what it means. It seems that the more people I ask, the more answers I get. One of my standard interview questions is, what development process do you use where you are today? I am always frustrated when they say, we “do” agile. My canned response is “What does that mean?” Very few developers can answer that question. I get the standard, “we have daily meetings and we don’t do requirements.”

The Agile Approach to “Doing” Agile

Over the past few years, I have watched developers go to conferences and be filled with excitement over agile development. We love the thought of the rapid changes and better feedback. We get into the buzzwords like Scrum, and Kanban, and the term Burndown list excites every developer’s inner pyromaniac. Then, we take all that excitement back to our day to day lives and quickly find out that we are not in a position to change the process that is in place.
