Agile

The Streisand Effect

When Barbara Streisand tried to cover up the fact that her Malibu beach front property was falling into the sea, she got it so wrong that they named an effect after her.

When I heard that Scaled Agile, the company behind the Scaled Agile Framework (SaFE) issued a DCMA takedown notice on a medium post comparing their agile framework to waterfall, I immediately thought of Ms Streisand.

I’ve led SaFE in a software development organisation. I’ve taken the Leading Agile course and I’m a ‘certified agilist’ according to their records (or at least I was until it lapsed)…

..and let’s just say this: there’s no smoke without fire.
