Check out this 20th century retro banner that BD00 stumbled upon whilst being given a tour of a friend’s new workplace:


OMG! The smug agilista community would be outraged at such a bold, blasphemous stunt! But you know what? BD00’s friend’s org is alive and well. It’s making money, the future looks bright for the business, and the people who work there seem to be content. Put that in your pipe and stoke it up.

    Hm… what happened to “If you want to make god laugh, tell him about your plans?” 😉

      I’d think it’s still alive and kicking. Some planning is better than zero planning and it’s also better than too much planning. The trick is figuring out how much “some” is.

        Of course! I’m a big fan of planning and I am trying to do less of it (following common advice), so I am actually thrilled to see someone in favor of planning.

    I never met an MBA who didn’t love planning 🙂

      It’s okay to love planning as long as you don’t fall in love with any one plan
