In 2001 a few of us met in hopes that we could agree on a simple statement that defines lightweight processes. We wrote a simple manifesto, and chose the name Agile. We had no idea how successful this idea would be.
At that meeting, Kent Beck stated a prime goal: “To heal the divide between business and development”.
Has that divide been healed? Or has it been made worse? Is Agile succeeding today or, like so many other movements before it, has it been diluted into irrelevance?
