Bret Pettichord wrote a blog post on how Agile is All About Feedback.
As usual, Bret’s writing is keenly insightful, stripping the issue down to its essence. And I totally agree with all his points, especially where he says:
“If you don’t have meaningful feedback then you’re not agile. You’re just in a new form of chaos.”
and his stirring conclusion:
“Agile practices build a technical and organizational infrastructure to facilitate getting and acting on feedback. If you aren’t going to adapt to feedback, then this infrastracture is waste that will only slow you down.”
Please go read the whole post. It’s great stuff.
