A starting point for a discussion on marrying Agile methods and CMMI.

Couldn’t have said it better myself…

From Andrew Brettle’s experience at an agile conference in London.
I would temper his comments only ever so slightly to point out that there are still too many organizations who have not progressed in their sw-dev thinking in 30 years. So, while many mature organizations have moved on from standard, linear, unidirectional development, far too many have not.
On the other hand, I’ve seen equally too many “agile” presentations erecting straw men effigies of “traditional” development to burn, often characterizing them as the embodiment of all-things-not-agile-born. That, too, has to stop.


My professional passion is to build high performance organizations out of companies motivated to be lean, agile, and achieve world-class results. My best clients are companies who have the courage, leadership, insight, foresight and discipline to be the best places to work, the best value to their customers and the best performing for their shareholders. I take a tough love approach and, frankly, have little patience for executives who *want* these things but expect to achieve them without putting in any effort or making any changes.
