In a new InfoQ interview
, Paul Oldfield shares his thoughts on agile software development, and what it means to do agile "right". Paul is an active member of the Scrum community, often providing insights which clarify agile values:
If we compare agile development to agile aircraft, the aircraft is inherently unstable, but has a really good feedback system to spot when it goes off track, and make the appropriate adjustment. This ability to make the appropriate adjustment is in short supply, and is, in my opinion, a major cause of the negative responses we get to agile approaches.
