In hindsight, I should have just blogged on it in SCN – but at the time, I thought it was beyond just SAP and hence I wrote it in my personal blog. Here is the link to my take on Agile
Of course, the fact that Agile did not work for me does not mean it was the same for others – and this blog attracted a lot of comments quickly, arguing for and against Agile. There were plenty of tweets flying around too.
The folks who joined the debate were several SAP mentors – and they provided more content on the subject than I could ever have by myself. And of course this made it a little more balanced, compared to my rather biased views on this subject.
Few weeks ago, Dagfinn Parnas, fellow SAP mentor, had participated in an enterprise geeks podcast on Agile. Listen to him here.
Apparently, Agile/scrum works well for him. And he is very passionate about it.
Halfway through the debates Ed H, the balanced geek that he is, decided to offer me an opportunity to present my case in an enterprise geeks podcast at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando, FL next month. And of course, I jumped to accept.
So come join us at SAPPHIRE and join in the fun debate. And let me know what your views are on Agile – either here or in my blog (linked above)
