in thread Nobody Expects the Agile Imposition (Part VIII): Software Craftsmanship

That is pure opinion editorial. No facts, no actual examples, and not one of the hypothetical anecdotes matched my experiences; I read the follow up post too and much of his would be insight was exactly the opposite of what I experienced at Amazon, for example. Its not a computer science writing. Its personal philosophy blog posts.

His logorrhea is only matched by his lack of meaningful, helpful, coherent conclusions, for example: Conclusion : Middle management is both the solution and the problem. rather than declaring the whole concept obsolete [we must\ figure out how to get good at it.

You know what that kind of fluff and that ouroborian logic sounds like to me? The problem is the solution! We dont know what to do but we need to figure it out!

Boo. Hiss. Fie.

    Of course yes. The blog is about Rants, essays, and diatribes. The article in question could have been enriched with anecdotes; but even so, it would also be personal opinion, perhaps worth to ponder. I personally believe (to quote blazar) that the "Agile Imposition" is akin to "Perl Best Practices": something useful for some, in some situations, but sought to be imposed as standard, once and for all, by those driving the scheme. No science there, either.
