*** Quote of the Month ***

"Our agile adoption would be so much better if only we had management support." We have heard that many times, but be careful what you wish for – you might get it! In one enterprise that got official "everyone do agile" management support after an informal adoption had been going on for several years, we hear the complaint, "I wish we never had management support; now people are doing things for the wrong reasons."

Reference:Practices for Scaling Lean and Agile Development, Craig Larman and Bas Vodde, Addison Wesley, ISBN 978-0-321-63640-9
