The Agile Executive

Making Agile Work

Interview with Jim Highsmith

leave a comment »

InformIT has just posted my interview with Jim Highsmith. While the interview naturally focuses on the the new edition of Agile Project Management, Jim makes quite a few observations on deep truths. For example, in response to my asking him to do a quick “retrospective” of the period since he signed the Manifesto, Jim gives both perspective and retrospective. Here is an excerpt from his answer:

If the Agile movement is to continue, we have to better understand what the core Agile principles really are, and not just our personal interpretation, and then find ways to incorporate thoughts and ideas that may seem in conflict with our own ideas. Just because some Agile camps may have a more widespread audience, that doesn’t make them the source for all things Agile. The essence of change is tolerance for new ideas that conflict with our own.

Enjoy reading the full interview!
