Over 10 years and I see some posts being written, quite interesting saying we have understood agile and we are moving towards aggressive adoption, some stating that it's become routine, boring and probably agile is on the decline. I liked a post in particular from Planbox blog what appeared to me as a declining agility Vs. evolving agility.
Its been a good experience to speak to various agile product suppliers and get their interesting views on journey deveoping the product, the outlook and vision into shpaing the products and the key trends. While its easy for us to get carried away with what you think and read on next trends in agile tooling, i was caught with a thought provoking insights speaking to Michael Dubakov, founder of "TargetProcess" about next key trend, TargetProcess focus and whats new in current release v.2.22
Agile tools have come a long way right from a simple Index Card to a full fledged software tool to manage enterprise level agile implementation. There always existed reservations on whether to use or not to use agile tools. Agile tools have not been used effectively so far either sometimes as a best practice to keep agile simple or at times a going by preference to use human interactions as much as possible than tools. I come across many small teams still using excel sheets which usually ends up with duplicating effort and unnecessary maintenance. While its good to use tools, lets see what are some trends or changes we are seeing developing agile tools this year.
