Yet another "agile is dead" article


I got this in an email chain at work, and had this long winded reply typed out, but I then cut it back and summarized as: “Author is a DBA. They have never liked the idea of “agile” as they want to model every database entirely to the Nth degree in Irwin with little/no changes. Advances in unstructured data and machine learning make that idea obsolete.”


Maybe we just stop using the following words:

  • Agile
  • Transformation
  • Coaching

And instead, we approach things obliquely… and

Apply the core values and principles…

  • Law of small teams
  • Law of the customer
  • Law of the network

and see what happens…
