I don’t do Agile, I AM Agile!

by Barry O'Reilly

Too often in agile software development we tend to use methodologies and all their components simply because the rule book says so. Why not select the tool based on the context of the goal your trying to complete.

Anything that you use that does not lead towards a direct value add to the final product delivered is simply an overhead and waste.
