As you can guess, I’m rather keen on spreading the word that it’s not enough to merely acknowledge that Agile and CMMI can work together, it’s time to start actually doing something to actively implement them together.  In fact, I’m going so far as to say

due to their respective points of view, instead of beefing up either of them to account for things the other doesn’t do, we ought to be using *both*!

And, if you’re not using both, you’re going to be left behind, because those that successfully implement the benefits of both Agile *and* CMMI will be unstoppable.
