Worship the Plan

Embracing planning assumptions as more real than what people and products are actually delivering — from Jim Highsmith.

It’s like driving into a river because your GPS tells you to.

Faith in GPS

Note: Jim Highsmith’s challenge of the CHAOS study and defining success as on time, on budget, and as originally specified.

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.
