Thanks for a very informative (and entertaining) series of posts. This hits
close to home for me because I'm currently experiencing the Agile Imposition.
It's been a very demotivational experience (no posters yet though :) for me
because in the five years at my current job I've worked with a great team that
has never failed to deliver on time and on budget. We have always been able to
deliver quickly and respond to changing requirements. We have never had a
problem communicating with each other. But now we're told that in spite of our
record of success we have to change the way we deliver software because managers
get gold stars for "embracing Agile". I don't have a problem with the Agile
methodology per se, but in our case it's fixing something that ain't broke.
When your life resembles Dilbert so closely that you start to suspect Scott Adams
is spying on you from a nearby cube, is it time to look elsewhere?
