New Posting at SustainableTDD

August 14, 2013 — Posted by Scott Bain

There is a new posting at the www.sustainabletdd.com blog site.

Amir and I have been so busy in the past few months that we’ve not been able to do much work on the blogs or the book.  But, a window opened up and we’ve got some new ideas to share.  We’re calling them, collectively, TDD Mark 3, and we’ve written the first blog about it.  Take a look!

Announcing the 3rd Generation of Lean-Agile

August 10, 2013 — Posted by Al Shalloway

A few years ago I called Kanban (by which I mean the term generally and not limited to the Kanban Method which I now call LKU Kanban) the 2nd generation of Lean-Agile.  I now realize we are already ready for the 3rd generation of Lean-Agile methods.  Let me explain.

See Process Practice Patterns on the Lean-Agile Project site for more.

August 10, 2013 — Posted by Al Shalloway

My last blog hinted at describing a new way to create frameworks/methods/processes (henceforth in this blog called frameworks).  I’ve decided to do a couple of other blogs first to deepen my understanding of my intended approach.  But I’ll tell you where I am going.

Framework Myopia

August 9, 2013 — Posted by Al Shalloway

Disclaimer: I could have named this framework/method/process myopia, but that seems a bit redundant.  So don’t infer I mean to pick on any Agile approach that is a framework over one that is called a method or a process.  I am just using the word framework generically.   For the purposes of shortness, whenever I use “framework” in this blog, pretend I’ve said “framework/method/process/…”.
