“We can’t try that Agile thing here, we need to have <fill in the blank>”
Does that sound familiar? That is just one variation of the many Agile Myths that I hear from people all over the world who are working to bring agile processes into their organization. Migrating to agile can be hard. Fighting FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) that is based on incorrect assumptions and misunderstanding can make the process that much more difficult. Wouldn’t it be great to have a resource that collects the most popular agile myths, lines them up, and knocks them down one by one?
Fortunately, I recently wrote an eBook (with editorial help from Joel Semeniuk and Steve Porter) that does just that. And we are making the book available for free to all attendees of our next Agile Q&A Panel on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 12:00 Eastern Time. For more information and to register for the webinar please go here.
If you haven’t attended any of our Q&A Panels in the past, they are a great opportunity to get YOUR questions answered. Hosted by Ramiro Millan, our monthly Q&A Panels feature Joel Semeniuk and Steve Porter and me. We spend the entire time answering questions from the webinar attendees as well as Twitter and Google+. This is an excellent time to get some quality one on one time with some of the leading thought leaders in the agile space.
The Agile Myths webinar is completely free and each attendee will get a copy of the eBook, “Top 30 Agile Myths – Busted”!
See you on the webinar!
