Perfection Is An Unrealistic Goal
Recorded at:

by Linda Rising on Jan 27, 2009 | NOTICE: The next QCon is in San Francisco Nov 16-20, 2015. Join us!

In this presentation filmed during QCon SF 2007, Linda Rising tried to approach agility from a different perspective, that of how we are wired to work and sleep, which turns out to be very similar to iterations. The conclusion was that we are not to do agile, but to rather be agile.
