    "Agile propagandists"? WTF?

    I haven't checked out the presentation yet so I might be missing something, but I would think that we're a little beyond name-calling by now. Perhaps I'm naive (or possible a closet "propagandist"), but I find that term rather offensive.

    Hi Dave :)

    This is directly from the presentation abstract. Given that the panel is full of the so-called propagandists, it was meant to be a little self-mocking and in jest.

    DAMMIT!! How do you expect me to be reactionary and uninformed?! Can't a guy just tee off without having to watch a bloody presentation?! :)

    Sheepishly,

    Panel member here.

    I paraphrase Sheryl Ross's characterisation of "propaganda" as communication with the intent to persuade a group of people to favour one set of idea over certain others. She contends that the purely negative sense of the word is too narrow.

    I'm a consultant, and if Weinberg is right that consulting is influencing others at their request, then propaganda is my job.

  • Agile Adoption - Crossing the Chasm

    I think, "we the agile propagandists", underestimate the extent of mindset change required by "non-agilists" to adopt agile. I have highlighted some of the key issues here - setandbma.wordpress.com/2008/06/14/agile-adoption/
