And the difference is..........

Just finished reading Jean Tabaka's article on 11 ways agile adoption fails on I could state that I'm an agile enthusiast - but I won't because I'm beginning to think differently. The same issues/problems described would cause any project under any methodology to fail, for example: Denial is Embraced Instead of the Brutal Truth.......mmmm - sounds like the Space Shuttle. It all comes back to people (not resources - people) - give the right person any tool and the job gets done - give the wrong person the top/best tool out there and you still end up with problems. Methodologies are important - compared to other methodologies, but the focus needs to be on the people.
