Chet Hendrickson & Ron Jeffries: XP Turns 20 and What Have We Learned?

Chet Hendrickson & Ron Jeffries (briefly) take over Agile Amped after (briefly) breaking Howard Sublett. Then the duo reminisce on 20 years of collaboration since the beginning of Extreme Programming (which, you’ll remember, is well before the onset of Agile). With decades of experiences in Agile (and its predecessor methodologies), Chet and Ron have lots to say about the state of Agile and aren’t above saying it. Of interest: the fact that so many Agile companies focus on the tools for doing Agile and few focus on actually being Agile. On this point, Chet advocates for “more Jenkins, less Jira.” Ron says it may be time to return to the roots of Agile and XP and do the unthinkable to get the desired results: change the name.
