I would like to see how others actually put Agile into practice.

Perhaps reading a book is not as optimal for that as a first hand experience. I know for myself I appear to communicate better by showing then by verbalizing how I seek agility.

For the most part, I'm trying to do what, I suspect, everyone else is trying
to do: improve the relationship they have with their customers. I have to sort out what advice >would still be useful, even after I agree with it.

What areas of your relationships with customers do you feel need change or improvement the most?

A good local forum for questions and disscussions are the Agile Philly meetings. http://wiki.agilephilly.com next meeting in August 7th at Comcast, 15th & Market in Philly. There are people there from big budget we are going agile projects, and people who are trying to be the agile influence at their company, to folks who are independent or on tiny teams.

The agile philly mailing lists is mainly about house keeping details with extremeprogramming@yahoogroups.com being used for the more general questions and discussions. Even with XP in the name all flavors of agile are on topic, but be warned the list is very active and apt to become a fire hose.

A long drive is one longer then you have last slept. Ineffable, if you don't understand I couldn't possibly explain it. _______________________________________________ To unsubscribe or change your settings, visit: http://lists.phillyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/talk
