Occasioned by this discussion on LinkedIn, I wanted to write to Project Managers everywhere…
Dear Project Managers everywhere,
I hear you have mixed views about the recent, er, “developments”, in the field of Software Development, commonly referred-to as “Agile Software Development practices”. I won’t call them “advances” as we may not be able to agree that they have, in fact, advanced anything. Incidentally, I share some of your likely skepticism on that front.
I am writing to you today to share some opinions and observations about the changes in train in the software development field, globally. Whilst patchy in their uptake, changes are afoot. I can relate to your professional concerns that we retain the best of what we have learned from decades of successful project management (this also, we have to admit, being very patchy, too).

So this morning started like I predicted yesterday. After a delicious breakfast, the day began with session presentations for the Open Space.
