Kathy Pink: I just completed a 2 day class in Agile Development aimed at Product Managers. While I have a good understanding of the concepts and practices of Agile Development, it is always a good idea to validate what you know (or think you know). Also it helps to understand how others are using the processe and what issues and concerns they have.
What surprised me was that some people look to the Agile Development methodology as the 'cure all' or panacea for their devleopment woes. No development methodology can make a disfunctional organization functional.
