Ten Agile Fortune Cookies

  • Small is better than big
  • Great teams are better than star individuals
  • Courage and heroism are different
  • Earning reputation is better than acquiring status
  • Agilists in a non-agile business are not agile enough
  • Your career is more important than your job
  • We crave human contact with the people who use our software
  • We can earn wages and be fair, honest, and worthy of trust
  • Robbing people of joy is evil
  • There are worse fates than being a dead sheepdog

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
