The best thoughts taken from the last meeting of Toronto Agile User Group (heard or taken from the air):
In reality client doesn’t need to spend less money – he needs to spend it wisely.
In reality managers don’t need to ship software faster – they need to ship it predictably.
It is all about honesty and trust. Honesty to others and to yourselves: to be ready to admit that everything else is just smoke and mirrors. And to trust others that you can say it out loud without igniting political wars.
