A post by Perryn Fowler reminded me of something I’d been meaning to say for a while. Perryn says:
agile is an adjective, not a noun
Saying ‘Agile Practices’ makes about as much sense as saying ‘Fast Running Shoes’.
Saying ‘Agile Best Practice’ makes about as much sense as ‘Fastest Running Shoes’.
It seems quite common (and I’m sure I’ve done it myself) to say you’re ‘doing’ agile. I think you can ‘do’ XP, Scrum or your methodology of choice, but agile has to be something you are.
