  • Dialogue Sheets update (1 of 2)
    continue to use the Agile Thinking sheet at the end of Agile training courses to help teams talk about how they will put the training into action. Steve Smith has recently adopted a similar sheet on his continuous delivery courses. 'It has been a while since I’ve written about Dialogue Sheets here - or indeed anywhere else. So here is a quick update and a request for some guinea pigs - I have ideas for new sheets but I need some teams to try them out. If you want to be a guinea pig for a new sheet skip to the end of this blog.) Now some statistics. A word of warning here.

  • Allan Kelly: The Estimates Land mine - use and misuse of estimates
    Observe yourself next time you have to catch a bus, train, complete a tax return, hand in course work or do something (almost anything) with your kids. 'After posting my last post - Estimate or #NoEstimate that is the question? I felt a little as if I’d stepped on a land-mine. That is to say I had a few comments and a bit a mini-twitter storm. If I’m being honest I have been avoiding some of the estimates/#NoEstimates debate until now precisely because it is obvious feelings on the topic run high. Through the Looking-Glass, Lewis Caroll). But back to the word “ Estimates.”

  • Putting together a new Mob
    Of course, there is no right answer for this and we tend to use the heuristic of A mob is the right size as long as: Everyone is learning or contributing However, if you are assembling a mob for full time hire then that heuristic is not very valuable. 'Hello. m Llewellyn Falco and recently I embarked on forming a 5-person mob to be hired for full time employment. This series is about our journey where I will share the good and bad so others can benefit from our experiences. So here is what I used with the best understanding I have as to why I choose these strategies.

  • Nightmare on Agile Street 2: Managed Agile
    my god, these guys are going on a Scrum Master course next week, there is going to be a bun fight, I don’t know who I worry about most these guys or the poor sod who is teaching the class…. 'Blow me down, its happening again… I’m awake. m wet, its a cold sweat. Its the small hours of the morning and the dream is horrid. ve been sent to Coventry. m in a clients office waiting for a meeting to start. The development manager is telling me she has selected me to help them become Agile, she checked me out online and recognises that I am pragmatic. Pragmatic. Pragmatic to me? But pragmatic?

  • Agile outside of software
    Of course Agile works outside of software because that is where it came from.” Last year Martin Rowe talked about how he used Scrum to manage the Foundation Computer Science course at Plymouth University. As a result of this discussion my company has adapted its successful Foundations of Agile Software Development 2-day course for companies outside software. 'Later this week I’m doing a presentation at Agile On The Beach entitled: “Agile outside of software development”. I resisted the temptation to call it “Agile Beyond Software”). In a way, “Agile” has come full circle.

  • Allan Kelly: Introducing the Agile Basics video series
    'In the last year I’ve had a lot of people ask whether I do online training, and I’ve had several of the partner organizations I work with suggest I should do more video training courses. If my courses were just me talking to the audience then maybe, but thats not what I do in my Agile training courses. More likely I imagine people who have been on my courses can use these to revisit some of the topics. ve even heard stories that some people can make good money doing this. My immediate reaction is doubt. But really: I just don’t know. How much editing?

  • Allan Kelly: Nightmare on Agile Street
    But of course they won’t. And of course I’m neither of those. Of course, without stories in the backlog he would cease to exist, his power comes from the size of the backlog, more stories more power. 'I’m awake. m lying in my bed. m sweating but I’m cold. Its the small hours of the morning and the dream is as vivid as it is horrid. m standing in a clients offices, I’ve been here before, I know whats happening. They are building an website. Quite a complex one, this will be the primary purchasing venue for many customers. All good stuff. How can that be? And the points….

  • Llewellyn Falco: #NoEstimates and Travel
    Of course there are also people who know exactly what is going to happen and do it anyways :-| Dieting When people are trying to lose weight they spend a lot of time planning meals and counting calories. 'Today I tweeted: 1970''s: Trips require $$ estimate & traveler checks 2014: Bring a credit debit card & only convert what I use #NoEstimates #ContinuousDelivery The idea I was looking at is pretty simple, when you have continuous flow you don''t need to predict. Batch vs Continuous Flow To me this echoed trends I''ve experienced in software development. Both matter.

  • A footnote of a book: Agile Reader, 3rd edition
    'If you have had the pleasure to see me present in recent months - either in public or on a training course - you might have noticed that I have taken to describing myself as “a writer who pays the bills by consulting and providing training.” Agile Reader is a collection of writing I give attendees on my training courses as further reading. believe my Agile course should be about giving people Agile experience in the classroom so they can just do it. Hence two traditional, old fashioned books Changing Software Development and Business Patterns. book by anyone’s standard.

  • Do you favor Removing Duplication or Expressive Code?
    Of course, this is just a observation of a pattern ordered by preference, personal preference , so it makes sense that you might have your own preference. 'Some time ago Kent Beck observed that there was a pattern for simple design Runs all the tests No duplication Expressess developer intent Minimizes the number of classes and methods There has been some debate over the ordering of #2 & #3. What is your personal preference?" Demonstrated values : what we actually do. For that we need a test. Removing Duplication Test Take a look at the following: Let''s remove the duplication.
