What I’m Working On


Here’s a structured decomposition of some of the program’s stakeholders.


Now, all I gotta do is find out who the “product owner” is and invite him/her to our daily Scrum standup meetings. Better yet, I’m gonna hire an “agile scaling” expert to parachute in and guide the team to on-time, under-budget success.

As you can see from the following slide, the program is docu-centric. Not one, but three upfront plans? WTF! No problemo. I’ll just sit all the stakeholders down and convince them all that “traditional” documentation stuff is unimportant and so-yesterday.


To hell with any upfront requirements and design thinking and capturing, we’ll start TDDing our way forward, discovering what needs to be done as we go. From day 1, we’ll start delivering software in monthly increments for the entire 3 year duration of the program. We’ll simply mock out all the mechanical, microwave, and digital signal processing hardware so we can go faster than a speeding bullet – twice the work in half the time. Trust us, it’ll all work out – we’re agile.

      LOL. I resemble that remark.

      I’m just so agiled to death that I’m finding myself on a crusade to counter the extremism with extremism. It’s not so much agile itself, it’s the agile scalers I’m lampooning.

      This too, shall pass πŸ™‚

    I’m guessing “move fast and break things” is your customers’ motto rather than yours πŸ˜‰
