Do It Yourself Agile

Originally, my blog was focused on Software Configuration Management. Then I described in a blog post how I realized that I'm not really an SCM person, I'm a software development process person that had been focused on SCM. So, I changed the name of the blog to "Agile Development Thoughts." Today I realized that this blog has changed its focus from random thoughts about Agile Development to a blog about Agile for the Agile DIY'er. So as of today, this blog is now "Do It Yourself Agile."

I still believe that the quickest route to Agile success is to get people involved who have done Agile before. But, that option is not always available and even when it is, it may not be possible to retain an Agile coach for the multiple years that it will take to reach your full Agile potential.

So, the idea of this site is to give the Agile DIY'er a resource to lean on. A good place to start is the web-only book "Do It Yourself Agile." This is an evolving book which is expanding and changing every week in response to questions and discussion from readers like you. If there is a topic that you don't see covered or that you would like to explore more fully, let me know! Just post a comment wherever you see fit or use the Q&A page. I'll answer your question or create a new blog post on the topic as soon as I can.

Check out the web-only book "Do it Yourself Agile" .

I can see the agile process in full effect with your first paragraph.

Interesting observation! Now you've got me wondering if it will change again in another year and if so to what?
